A telescope is great but very, very difficult to capture anything with because of the randomness and speed of these buggers.
I decent camera set solidly in a dark place with an open shutter should catch some interesting things.
There are a few apps that will also show the position, direction and trajectory of satellites. ISS is often easy to view with the naked eye, binoculars or a scope (think spotting scope) can provide some spectacular scenery.
I'll be at a conference upstate so I'm looking forward to some great viz.
