    It would be interesting to get synchroni[sz]ed two-telescope observations 
    with a large enough separation that there would be a measurable parallax. 
    That way you could measure the distance to the satellite.

    I think that to see it in 3D the cameras would have to have been very far 
    apart or two pictures would need to be taken from a relatively long interval 
    of time apart. See: http://www.astrospider.com/iss_3d.htm for an example.
