Looking up at the spy
When spy satellites peer down at you from over head, what can you do? Well, if your’re Thierry Legault and Emmanuel Rietsch you look back! The pair of enterprising Frenchmen have modified a consumer-grade telescope, added a small motor, hand-held controller and a video camera. The result is a do-it-yourself satellite tracker capable of recording the movements of America’s most secretive spacecraft.
You can check out some of their photo trophies at Thierry’s website.
