Although the disc is blank, there were some nice proms today.   Seeing mostly ~ 2.5 arc-sec (lots of wind) but occasionally dipping a bit lower.

Nice shot!  I battled the wind as well yesterday, at times having to hold onto the table the computer was sitting on in its “garage” to keep everything from tipping over!

Yeah, tough getting 1 arc-sec stability when the wind is howling !
