    Hello all,
    
    I have used Heavens-above.com to get a feel for the satellites I am likely
    to pick up in this location, and it seems I am in a prime location for
    spotting the Ofeq-5.
    
    I have tried looking for and photographing Ofeq-5 two evenings in a row,
    without success. Yesterday it was even supposed to have a visible pass
    close to zenith, but I got nothing, even when photographing wide-angle
    continuous 5-second exposures 5 minutes before and after the anticipated
    pass.
    
    I see the elsets are old. Any suggestions on what to do? Picking up a
    retrograde satellite with my shotgun photograpy approach should be
    feasible, right?
