    I have one of them, but I have yet to try it on geostationary satellites, are any other
    Awhile ago, I took some test images, using a camera lens mounted on it, for a wide feild. 
    Just wanted to see how good it was.
    The feild of view, is at least 4 degree across. 
    Area of sky around vega, used in the test.
    2 second capture, can see stars down to at least magnitude 8.
    8 second capture, stars down to the 10th magnitude I can spot. 

    Here's what the setup looked like, for those 2 images I took with the deep sky imager pro.
    I used the following adaptor, to attach the lens to the ccd camera.
    Any future use, will be with my 4 ince scope.
