    Many years ago I tried binoculars (and analog camera) but found none.
    Living near Stockholm and being unfamiliar with the southern
    hemisphere didn't help.
    
    Now with darker surroundings, a digital camera on a FIXED tripod is superb.
    A 30-60 s exposure on 400-800 ASA, and inspecting the image
    immediately shows you the stars as short streaks, and the GEOs as
    "bright" dots.
