Hi all

last night we tested our new video camera with integration function. We use
Brent Bosharts sattracker and caputred six frames from the video signal.
After the second picture we donīt believe it. One satellite has moved.
Normally, I thought, geostationary satellites have fixed positions. The
pictures are at


available. It was beautiful to see how fast the stars moved behind the
satellites. They only need  38 seconds to cross the view. I hope a movie
will follow the next days.

Have all clear skys
