Re: Photographing geosynch satellites

For reasons unknown, I did not get a complete copy of the SeeSat-Digest
96/228 in which Geoff Chester's response and correction to my post on this
subject appeared, only now learning of my mistake.  In my original post, I
had indicated, after working out the exposure formula provided in Barry
Gordon's book, "Astrophotography" that for a mag. 10 geosync satellite, using
200 ASA/ISO film and a C-8 at prime focus, the resulting exposure time was "2
seconds."  Geoff correctly pointed out that should have been "2 minutes."
 This, obviously, was no small error and I thank him for catching that.
