Alex suggests my web pages in his note
These pages were written some time ago, but still offer some ideas to follow up like “Drift Scan”. I did some experiments with this (Detailed How To section 17) using a 300mm lens and a simulated occultation.  I suggest this might be a usable method to record it with a DSLR and an un-driven optic. I hope someone will see the occultation and time the start and duration of the event.  I wont be observing this (too far away) but I look forward to receiving any results (negative or positive) by whatever means is available – best of luck and my regards to the Chester group.
