Dave asked about the above.  I have a more general question on the use 
of computerized telescopes to track satellites.  Examples may be the 
Meade LX200 and the Celestron Ultima 2000.

Has anyone besides that smart guy from the US East coast (Ron D) used
satellite tracking software for telescopes to find and track objects?
I am aware of the C-Sat software for the Meade.  Does a similar program
exist for the Celestron?  Has anyone used said software/telescope such
that you can provide an honest assessment?
