    If memory serves, you can get a computerized Meade telescope for <$1,000.
     For very little extra cost (<$100), you can connect it to a computer and
    get software that is specifically designed for tracking satellites.
    
    Why upgrade when you can get a new telescope for probably less $$$ (and
    probably better, too) ?
