    All of the above obs made with 200mm dobs with a 1200mm focal length using a
    40mm eyepiece for a 1.4 degree field of view. Robic stopwatch used with
    digital voice recorder. Points reduced using ObsReduce.
    I was trying some prime focus photograhy with telescope when I saw a bright
    satellite unaided eye. I was able to position dobs tele in front of moving
    sat and with a 6 second exposure was able to capture the light trail of sat
    thru fov on 3 different exposures. I haven't tried to id sat, yet, but it
    was in the northeast at a 50 degree elevation at approx 3.06.00UTC
    I had taken some exposurses of Vega at 3.2,4,5,8,10 and 15 seconds. No other
    stars were visible in picture. I have to use a 2x barlow to be able to focus
    with digital camera. Does anyone know what my field of view would be?
