Hi Y'all,

 

Weather Forecast for today, Monday Dec 10th 2018 was...

36 hour Forecast.jpg

 

The Clear Sky Chart prediction was a mite unusual.

The last couple months I'd been having just the opposite.
Transparency - Averarge to Good and Seeing - Poor to Below Average

 

Anyway, the Chart was wrong,  the Seeing was Below Average! mad.gif
Also, conditions began a slow decline from 9AM to Noon. frown.gif

 

Here's what I managed to do...

 

Full Solar Disk - Lunt LS50 Single stack

Merge 08-57-30 F200 & 09_43_43 F25 Colr.jpg

 

 

Prominences - Canadian Telescope 152mm + Lunt LS50 etalon SS

 

Proms at 2 O'clock

Glad you got out, yep, a lot of proms on there today, for the 5 minutes I got without clouds!

 Would have thought you were using a bigger scope. I'm assuming the 50mm etalon means it's a really long FL 2".  A cloudy day here. David

Hi David,

I was using a bigger scope for the close-up images of the proms.

The etalon, from the Lunt LS50 telescope of focal length 350mm, was transferred to the back of the focuser of the Canadian Telescope 152 which has a focal length 900mm.  Both systems were f7.

LOL Warren, yes I saw you thread.  Hey, you did well until those clouds shut your down.

Sometimes, I feel like we are BEARS... coming out of our hibernation caves... to look at the sun... then try to figure if it's worth going outside to do something or... just go back to bed.  lol.gif  Actually, it's not very funny - too close to the truth. bawling.gif 

 

Best,

Rick

I like the FD Rick.  Assuming those are Fahrenheit temps, you are a hearty sole!  Play the hand you're dealt eh?  You must be heating your BF right?

No... Canada is all metric.  -9 and -6C translates to 15.8 and 21.2F.

I never heated my BF even in much lower temperatures.

 

Best,
