    Hi,
    looking at M22 with my 8" scope I saw a satellite passing through at around 
    22:50 EDT. The satellite was travelling very slowly. It took between 30 sec and 
    1 min to cross the field of view of my 26mm eyepiece (Meade 4000 series). Using 
    Guide 8.0 and Mike's alldat.tle I found the sat was Intlsat 6F2 Rk. It was 
    travelling so slow because it was at more than 17000 km. Very nice!
    
    Some infos:
    Telescope: Dobson 8" 1200mm
    Eyepiece: Meade 4000 26mm
    Location: 71 54' W, 45 24' N
    
    Clear Skies!!!!
