    I am in the process of deciding upon which telescope to buy, and would
    like to get some feedback as to any advantages one might have in
    attempting to view satellites.  I read the VSOHP on telescopic
    sightings, but did not see any advice or recommendations there.  I think
    I remember reading on the list about some software that enabled the
    Meade LX200 scopes actually track satellites by its computerized drive. 
    Would the same software work for Celestron models?
    
    The scopes I am considering are the Meade 10" or 12" SCTs or one of the
    the Celestron 11" SCTs.
    
    Thanks!
    
    Judy
