    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 
    6 h 03 m R.A
    -6 deg 35 min Dec
    Feild of view, around 40 arc minutes as a estimate.
    Now back to using the video camera, at the end of the scope.
