    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
    
    http://www.heavensat.ru/english/
    
    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.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
