    I have no experience yet, but I intend to get it when my ordered 8" LXD55
    (and I have only a freeware webcam as yet). With this aperture and
    (reasonable) magnification, the light/pixel of ISS is much more than Venus,
    which is visible in daytime when you look at the right place.
    
    The AutoStar should help me find bright satellites anywhere, but in this
    case the Moon is an even better reference.
    
    With some luck, you might have a (bright) star appulse in daytime to test
    on - SkyMap can help you find it.
