    I tried the video last night and got the ISS&STS combo to drift through
    the field about a dozen times. But there were several problems. First
    the thing is so bright it was saturated. I'll need to filter. Second,
    I'm concerned about the movement through the field of a 1250mm lens (C5
    telescope).  Does anyone know if it will be possible to get images off
    video with such a lens? Has anyone done this, or will I have to design
    a device that will follow the spacecraft?
    I should point out too, I looked at the predicted track of the ISS 
    and in my head did a quick calculation on where my polar axis of
    my C5 mounting should point so one motion could do most of the tracking.
    The technique worked pretty well. I was, with mostly one motion, able
    to get ahead of the duo so they could drift through the field.
