Finding Geosynch Satellites

There may have been a question on plotting satellite paths against
stars to aid in finding them.  May I humbly suggest Rob Matson's
Skymap.   It has available stars down to 10th magnitude or so.

It is what I use to find geosynchs and other high altitude objects.

Try this site for that program and many other good ones:

It also prints those charts, including E/W mirror image for Celestron
type scopes with a diagonal.   Works GREAT!
