    Per Garhard's suggestion I gave it a try this evening with a 20  
    second exposure using a C-14 and SBIG ST-10 binned 3x3.
    Unfortunately Vanguard was so low in my sky the C-14 was operating at  
    less than half aperture.
    Still, there is "something" on the image.
    I hope to try it again when it is better placed for imaging.  Maybe  
    then I'll get something more definitive.
    Thanks for the suggestion, Gerhard.
