    But the lucky exposure technique and a variant that works with image
    segments has been successfully used to image satellites since the
    middle of the 1990s, notably by Ron Dantowitz and Marek Kozubal (both
    of whom used to post here).
    
    Of relevance to Lacrosse, see Dantowitz' article in the August 1998
    issue of Sky & Telescope and 
    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Aug-1996/0064.html
    
    Probably further discussion should be off list.
