All images bad, 36 satellite, 3 variable stars, 56 minor planet.

Had a few folks ask for certain satellites, in this forum and others. I look at anything that is available to image - probably way more than I should (ask the analysts). If it ain't posted, I couldn't see it.

Same thing happens with minor planets. Observatories (!) are asking me to track minor planets for photometry and spectroscopy because they lack the resources. And I am far from the only one doing this. Citizen science is the new normal.

If you can post to this list, you can get a remote telescope account and image satellites. I had never done any imaging when I started.

Please do not cry "Play Free Bird!" when you can rent (or even get a free) guitar.
