A satellite will spy? Here is how to return the favor - 22-June-2011, 19:41

Two enterprising French have found a way - completely legal - to seek out secret missions in the skies in America: using a simple telescope.

Tens of kilometers above our heads every day, American drones and satellites, control rebels and terrorists, and perhaps a little spy 'all of us. Now someone here on Earth decided to return, watching the sky, to identify these mechanical eyes in the air around our planet. Groped in the company were two Frenchmen, Thierry Legault Rietsch and Emmanuel who, thanks to an amateur telescope have changed again a few spaceships on a secret mission.

As we learn from the site of the two Frenchmen, the idea was born in 2009. Within two years, and Rietsch Legault took over the International Space Station, the X-37B space plane and the two spy satellites Keyhole and Lacrosse - similar to those with whom the U.S. has discovered Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. For registrane movements, the two hunters in the area have mounted a telescope on a small motor and have it connected to a camera, putting together a wireless system that can rotate to follow an object in orbit around the Earth.

Initially, Legault and equipped Rietsch have a Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain 10-inch frame with a Takahashi EM400 used for satellite tracking. All radios remote controlled with a joystick, used to keep the object in the frame. However, as the site says Legault, "to capture a spacecraft with a sensor a few millimeters to a focal length of 5000mm and a speed of 1 / s requires a lot of concentration and practice."

For this reason, after months of filming, the two Frenchmen have decided to switch to more advanced technologies: a computer program, Sky videos, and a new telescope. With this system, the lens is focused in the area of ​​the sky where there will be a satellite to pass: when the object passes through the eye of the telescope, the computer activates the motor so you can follow. A completely legal way, then, almost as much as peeking out the window.
