Andre, I gotta ask how observing under the warm sun during the day affects seeing?

It's cool you found someone who is imaging the sun for comparison. I often do that with Jupiter to help confirm a difficult observation.

Norme.

The reason I changed my evaluation of my observing from Seeing to Conditions is especially to reflect my local conditions. As I'm surrounded by houses all around, the convecting heat from the roof tops cause me some problems especially during winter as the sun is very low. If my own conditions are bad doesn't mean if I would be in an open area I would get the same.

Thank you so much Jim. I'm extremely glad to have a comment from you. I don't know if you have seen some others of my sketches, but I appreciate you did it for this one.

Andre.
