    Hi William
    You will find HEAVENSAT hard to beat - vastly superior to SATSPY in my 
    opinion- I have used both. Its totally freeware and gives a much superior 
    representation of the sky than SATSPY - down to magnitude +13 if you wish. 
    It has numerous other features. There is a bit of a learning curve but most 
    of it is pretty obvious.
    Program may be found at
    Its the main program used by myself as well as several other observers here.
    If you want to pay money for a commercial program then GUIDE 8 is almost as 
    good as HEAVENSAT for satellites but then GUIDE has many other capabilities 
    so well worth the money - together they form a combination hard to beat. In 
    both cases they can handle an unlimited number of satellites- the database I 
    used this morning had over 14400 objects.
