10GHz is near an amateur band so you will find plenty of designs
at or  What sort of bandwidth would you want?

But how are you going to steer it?  Equitorial mount and geared
down motor.  Loud grinding noises from Ian's home

Get a multi mode receiver and use it as a tunable IF.  Feed the
output, via analogue to digital,  to a comms port; and write a
driver for the port.

Write some patern recognising software, then sit back and wait.
