We have been in Port St Joe for awhile and this will be our home for over a month and more if needed.
Finally had a day , while windy, average seeing and transparency, to get the scope out .
I was rewarded with a couple fantastic proms at 12 and the best and biggest at 2. This is my take thru the refractor, won’t match GONG.
Lots of detail there ever changing thru the session.
Noticed some very wispy looking material that had blown away at 6 and 8 and this was just barely there in the 100 and extended out about 3 times the distance of the largest bright prom at 2.
Also caught a small loop prom that erupted at 6 very defined and when I looked again in about 30 mins it was gone , neat stuff .
Of coarse the limb was very broken with spicules all around.
This was all observed with 15mm APM I got from Lunt in my Denks on the highest power setting with the power switch. I’ll have to figure out the mags sometime.
Usually at home in Central IL the 15s are a treat on only the best days , but down here I’m wondering if I need more power?
Does anyone down here use 10mm on a regular basis?
I may have to order in.
Everything is unpacked now so setup will be from now on for quick sessions as needed.
