Hi All,

 

The weather forecast for Monday, Jan 20 2020, was for sun all day!

Yes, it was sunny all day - no clouds. laugh.gif

 

Alas, the Clear Sky Chart predicted 'Poor' Seeing... and it was. frown.gif

So, I went fishing; here's my 'catch of the day'.

 

Full Solar Disc (32mm + Quark + ASI178MM)

Those proms at 4:30 and 7:30 have some interesting structure to them.  Trying to decide if I want to set up in the cold today...with my cold that I’m getting today!🤧

Nice images

I guess I’m going to have to stop complaining about temps in the 20s after looking at your weather.

Currently, the early mornings have been about -18C (0F).  That's OK but if the temperature drops a few degrees lower, then my Quark has trouble coming on band.  I may need to warp i with a heating pad!

 

Best,

Rick
