Is the lack of slewing speed for tracking close passes of ISS and others, limited to the ETX series?  I would like to get into telescopic satellite observing, and would appreciate some feed back from you guys who are already doing this kind of observing.
    The LX-200 model is no problem Brian. You can buy tracking software
    for it at reasonable prices, so it cant be a problem. I cant recall
    the URL of the site at this time, but it certainly was around a couple
    of months ago.
