It was hot and humid today.  The Clear Sky Chart didn't look too pretty.

Seeing predicted to be poor, transparency in the dumpster and lots of clouds. frown.gif

What more could I possibly want? lol.gif

 

Anyway, I got some decent images.  32mm for full disc and 152mm for proms - both with Quark.

Spectacular Rick, do you use the 150 visually, if so what ERF if any are you using.

Hi Gus,

 

No I'm not a visual kind of guy.  lol.gif

 

I still use ERFs.

A 2" Daystar dielectric (reflecting) UV/IR cut before my 1.3x Barlow to reflect those nasty wavelengths back out the objective.

I also use a 2" absorptive UV/IR cut filter before my Quark.

 

I don't need both but...

- the 2" dielectric is part of my 1.3x Barlow assembly that stays on the 152mm scope,

- 2" absorptive is part of my Quark assembly that moves between my 152mm and my 32mm.

 

Best,

Rick

Nice shots Rick, it's like shooting through soup here so did some gazing but no shots.  It was a tad warm here too!  flame.gif

Sun is too high in the sky to use the window!
