    I have tried to find a suitable book on satellite observing but it seems
    that none has been published in recent years.  This seems strange to me when
    the nature of the hobby has changed so much.  The most recent I can recall
    is the Desmond King-Hele book "Observing Earth Satellites" which of course
    is out of print.  I found a chapter in Patrick Moore (ed) "The Observational
    Amateur Astronomer" which has an excellent introductory chapter by Howard
    Miles on satellite observing, but it was written in 1992 and has gone out of
    Does anyone know of another, recent book?  If not, perhaps you can pitch
    this one as an idea to Springer-Verlag, Ted?
