    Hello
    I may have mentioned this before but there is a great piece of software that
    allows most goto mounts to track satellites.
    It is SatelliteTracker.. Very original name.
    The developer has recently decided to move on to other projects and has
    re-released it as a totally free version no longer requiring a key (right
    after I purchased it :( )
    
    He has a yahoo group
    
    http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/satellitetracker/
    
    And you can download the program for free from the files section. It is
    setup.exe .
    
    It works with my Astro-Physics mounts but since they are GEM's I can only
    track to the meridian so they aren't too good for real satellite tracking. I
    am hoping the Ioptron/SatelliteTracker combo may work at a reasonable price.
    
    Dale
