Computer - something fast enough to take video from the webcam.
Preparation and patience - your first tries may not work!
AVI2BMP Software for later image separation from the .avi file.
Once you have all the basic gear, set it up well before the spacecraft come over. Give yourself enough time to set up and prepare the computer and telescope. Rushing this will just end up with nothing, a blurry image,or maybe even forget to start the computer recording! (I've done this many times)
On camera software - Frames per Second: 10 - Brightness: 50% - Gain: 40% (may vary with aperture)
Put mouse pointer on the start button of your recording software. Get ready!
When station shows up on horizon, wait until it's about 30+ degrees high.
Hand-guide the scope keeping the bright station in the middle of the Telrad (preferred) circle.
When station is overhead, knees and back must be bent in most painful position possible for best image!
Stop recording when station is gone, low, behind tree or house.
Play the resulting .avi video and see if station flashes through frames now and then.
