Demonstrate CubeSat astronomy using virtual telescope alignment.

Description

CubeSat astronomy using virtual telescope alignment. The two cubesats maintain Inertial-hold in about 10 min using vision alignment system. Could pave the way for a new class of instrument that can peer through the sun's glare or at distant alien planets, without requiring a massive single scope. Demonstrate key technologies for using free-flying coronagraphs in space, including micro-propulsion using millinewton thrusters, relative position sensing, and communications control between the two spacecraft.
