Fortunately, he later found the Sky Window apparatus that combines binoculars with an adjustable mirror:
Allows observer to be seated while “looking down” at the sky in total comfort.
Keeps binoculars fixed at a “microscope” angle while observing from horizon to zenith. Observer’s head never moves ! Only Sky Window® can do this !!
It works with “most modern binoculars with Standard 1/4-20 spindle tripod port ( adapter for Celestron giants and custom fit available)”. Check it out if this would suit your satellite observing style.
