Re: Satellite tracking for AP900?

Out of interest, does this work with CP2 mounts, which don't support
variable rate tracking?

FYI, before you really can go "high" power, it will take a bit of
practice to get it all working.  First try a wide-field on some other
satellites. Also, the one thing I'd add to the previous list is to
make sure to down load the current orbital elements.

I have used satellitetracker which is now freeware available from the
satellitetracker Yahoo group.

Set the scope type to 'LX200 Compatable'.

I've just learned that the ISS is passing right over (88 degrees
azimuth) Phoenix tonight. I was wondering if there was anyway I
get my AP900 to track it so I could view it under high power?
