The day started out totally cloudy but around 12:30 EDT some blue patches broke out and since I had been away from my scope for over a week I went ahead and set up and caught a few shots in HA and CaK.  Sorry I missed all of the activity last week but glad to see the new AR2770 come into view as 2769 starts to fade a bit.  Lunt LS60T DS, Orion ED80T and Lunt CaK Module, Skyris 236M on iOptron CEM25P
