    I have used this same type of equipment in integrated mode to track 
    satellites and it is just as you describe.  When reducing the 
    observations from the recording you need to advance the video until the 
    exact moment between satellite streaks.  The camera dumps the streak 
    after the integration but the time inserter continuously records, so you 
    need to find and time the end of the streak.
