Greetings fellow satellite observers,

This is a note inviting all on this mailing list to drop in on my new 
astrophotography Web site at 


and see what I do with my Schmidt camera up at my observatory north of 
San Antonio.  Welcome and enjoy your visit.

I have been on the SeeSat list for quite a while, but never introduced
myself.  My name is Robert Reeves,49 years of age, and I live in San
Antonio, Texas.  I am now mainly into visual satellite observing for the fun
of it using the various prediction programs available for IBM compatibles.
I am a writer, part time astronomy teacher and astrophotgrapher.

My main interest is the bright satellites seen from my city back yard and
any passes by multiple satellites, either in a cluster or by a chance alignment.

Back in the early 1960's I began my satellite observing under the wing of
Paul Maley when we were both high school students here in San Antonio.  He
would predict them and I would photograph them.  It worked out well and I
have been interested in satellite observing since.

My first observation was in 1858 of the Sputnik 3 rocket body.  In early
1960, I saw the actual Sputnik 3 satellite, then after Echo 1 there was
stuff everywhere to see.  I have been enjoying it since.
