    Judy,
    
    I've been using an 8" LX200 with Csat software for about 18 mo. and have
    had very satisfactory results.  I've observed as many as 67 sats in a
    single evening.  Csat only works with the LX200.  You can get info about
    it and/or order it from http://www.skyshow.com.
    
    For more details, please email me at bradf@inreach.com.
