Hello:

Could someone point me to information on using a cooled CCD camera to
look for Sats?
I have done quite a bit of looking.  See:
http://www.pacific.net/~brooke/Astro.html#Sat

What happens if the Field Of View is in the 5 to 10 degree range rather
than the much smaller FOV that results from using about 1 pixel for a
star image?  I would think that stars would not be imaged well, but
couldn't you see moving sats better than with binos?

Thanks,

Brooke
