Hi All,

 

A mite 'warm' today! lol.gif

 

Clear Sky Chart for today was for Poor Seeing, Poor Transparency, Average ECMWF Cloud (whatever that is!) and no clouds.

Surprisingly, between the clouds, everything else was not so bad!
Anyone know what ouija board the weather forecasters use?

Top captures Rick, that Quark looks to be a great unit.

Hi Bin,

The reducer is a 1.25 inch, 0.5x GSO type - available everywhere on eBay.  I have it spaced out from the camera to give me 0.44x - exactly what I need to frame the full solar disc.  I just leave it on when I move the Quark to the larger telescope for close up images of proms.

Hi Gus,

Actually, I think the Quark is an average one... it's my image processing that has changed for the better over the last few months.

 

Thanks for all the 'likes' and comments.

 

Best,

Rick

Nice images! Another guy and I were at an Apollo 11 50th Anniversary program yesterday at a local high school planetarium with two Coronado SM-II 90 solar telescopes. One was set up for visual, and I had my DSLR and 2X tele-extender on the other showing a live view image on my laptop computer, which was a hit! I spent most of the time panning between the proms at 2 and 4:30, both of which showed up nicely and were easy to switch between just by slewing in Dec, but if there weren't a lot of people around and the ones there were interested, we'd sweep around the edge and spot some of the others. The imaging telescope was on an AVX mount and the visual scope was on a CG-5 ASGT, and both were tracking beautifully, which made it easy.
