I would love to have a system like that! 
Searching for small objects near decay, a stationary mount could
be sufficient if the object is near an apex, or the expected
error is no more than a few minutes.

To find a KH object after five months of shadow passes (or launch)
, a simple tracking setup, even manual/mechanical, should be
sufficient, with the ten degree field quoted !
