Hi All

I've been working on a small deep space satellite observation system.  
This evening I was able to track OPS 6577 (VELA 5) [1458, 1965-058A] at 
a distance of over 109,000km.  A 4" SCT at f/6.3 was used with a ZWO ASI 
1600mm sensor.  As you can see from this post it would be easy to reduce 
observations from this.  I have not applied any correction to the image, 
just raw sensor data.  No flats, darks etc.

Next step is trying for optical observations of Chang'e 5.

Best Regards,

Scott Tilley
