Hey Peter and the gang, 
I too hope I'll get around to catching AO-40 in good position with favorable 
lighting for photo/viewing using my 8" SCT.  I've captured many satellites in 
my astrophotographic work, some even in GEO and have managed to see AO-27 
with binoculars.  I think it was STARDUST that was easily captured in photos 
recently during it's gravity assist flyby of earth and I don't think it's 
much larger than AO-40.  Anyway, I'm glad to hear someone else is pondering 
this possibility as well and might even beat me to the punch by capturing the 
first photo images of AO-40 in orbit.  Best of luck and hope to some images 
soon, that is if I don't produce them first...hi.
