Hi All,

 

First the weather...
... total lack of accurate prediction. mad.gif

 

Here's a comparison of the Clear Sky Chart predictions for today - Tuesday Dec 3 2019.

00 Clear Sky Chart Comparison.jpg

The top chart is from December 1 at 23 hours.  Whooppe, I'm pumped!  Seeing to Above Average!!!

The bottom chart is from 6AM today - 31 hours later.  The Above Average Seeing is now Poor!  What a let down...bawling.gif

It's these kind of predictions that bother me; can't we do any better than this?

 

On with the solar images...

 

Full Solar Disc (32mm + Quark + ASI178MM)

Hi Rick,

 

Nice images for the seeing and the low solar elevation!

I think you could do better than this!  Maybe you could do the weather forecasting in your spare time?  lol.gif
