November 25th sun
Posted 25 November 2012 - 04:34 PM
Back from night shift work this morning, I had to benefit the only clear sky window of the day at 8am in a very cold morning at -4ºC but with a strong wind lowering the feel to surely -10ºC. The wind was from north-west and the sun was opposite direction at south-east. My POD did really a great job protecting me from the arctic wind and I was very comfortable during 1 1/4 hour before the seeing get very bad. I've been able to do these three sketches.

Norme. You have never observed the sun !!! Are you serious. Man, you would be amazed to see in my scope what it can deliver. You would be glued to the eyepiece. That would be so much a pleasure to offer you that my friend, but saddely we are too far from each other.

Thanks to you too Jason. A POD, its a Skyshed POD (personal observator dome). You never seen my videos placed on youtube by the designer himself.
