Tried AUS-2 scope at telescope.live to test suitability for LEOs. Did not get request in to have it expose during twilite (they had a short term 50% deal). I've been through 4 of 18 images so far (!) and it may take a while. In general, this doesn't look too attractive to me as I can use Perth scope and iTelescopes. Significant issues with plate solving images, will post more as I can.

702 (63-014H) is new to me; a clump or can from Westford Needles experiment from early 60s. Amazing that some of this stuff can be imaged. 

In case you don't know, that project was an attempt to ensure global high fidelity communications by putting thousands of small satellites [OK, needle sized] in orbit. There was widespread furor over the destruction of LEO sustainability and the possibility that part of the EM spectrum would be ruined for Earth observatories. Hmmm....
