    I have not yet tried it but I read that it "leapfrogs". This could depend on
    the mount you use. I will test it and let you know. I haven't done much with
    it as I have a GEM that flips when satellites cross the meridian. It seems
    that an LX200 in alt/az mode is about the best mount for auto-tracking. You
    could also test it to get an idea if it tracks and leapfrogs by just trying
    it out in daylight or even in your living room and watching how the mount
    moves.
    Look at SatelliteTracker. It is free and has a list of supported mounts. It
    has a Yahoo Group of the same name where you can download it.
