Got an excellent weather in the morning, so against my wishes to do other things, I could not resist the lure to take out my rig and image.

This time, I managed 1.5 hours of imaging before getting to work.

Beautiful Ilan!  Wonderful processing on those AR shots!  The proms look good as well, some nice delicate features in those.

Yes it is. Makes life way easier and allow for a very gentle focusing. I should have got it earlier but now I can appreciate it better.

Great images, Ilan!  Fantastic job.  It's good that you were able to take advantage of good seeing.

Those are very nice photos ilan.  I have a feeling the lure is only going to get more tempting as solar max gets closer.  Lol

Your feeling is correct. Today was another day in which I setup my rig. I got up after 4 hours of imaging and visual work grin.gif . Good thing it's not a working day.
