I thought this weekend was going to be another cloudfest but I was able to get a small window of imaging in this afternoon.  Here is a Ha full disk using my LS60 pressure-tuned with an SM II DS etalon. Not a heck of a lot going on, just a few filaments, small proms and an interesting plage area.

I hear you!  It was 12 days since I set up last.  It was supposed to be mostly cloudy with a chance of thunderstorms today.  I got a 90-minute window and if I didn't take it it would be another 6 days until I would get another chance.

I haven't set up in a couple of weeks either!!

Today wasn't any help though.

I had clear skies but the transparency wasn't there.

I spent a couple of hours before the heat and humidity set in, but all I could process were a few over exposed proms, which maybe I'll post later.

Oh well, next week maybe..

Thanks
