    I finally did it, I actually used my meade deep sky imager, at the end of my 4 ince scope, to really try it out.
    
    I was able to capture Intelsat 1R ( 26608 ) with it :)

    The 26608-2 was captured at 4:40:33 utc ( Nov 23 )
    All 1 second exposures.
    Stars 10 mag and brighter, I can see in the image.
    
    Area of sky
