    I was testing out a Focal Reducer that I purchased 
    I can see down to at least Magnitude 11, when I was using it in the end of my 4 ince refractor
    It gives me at least 1/2 degree feild of view, when using the video camera. That's so nice to have
    a wider feild of view, then I would have if I didn't use the Focal Reducer. 
    The satellite I spotted, after I had replayed back the video today was
    SL-8 DEB ( 01479 ) It was over 1700 km away at the time.
    Look carefully at the bottom left corner, for the satellite.
