Re: Another Quark Question

I wouldn't say better...just trying to use a different amplification optic to get around the built in 4.2x telecentric barlow.

Re: Something brewing Dec 9th

Many thanks for the comments Pedro and Maurits :bow

Starting to sound like I was catching the decline of the activity around the departing AR based on what those in Europe were seeing earlier in the day.

Raf, Alexandra, and Mike...

Thanks for your comments and feedback...always appreciated :bow

Raf, I don't see anything out of the ordinary but the final work was done on my laptop so it may not be the best picture quality (brightness/contrast wise). Has anyone else noticed horizontal bands?

Good day everyone... I was fortunate to have a few clear hours this morning...it cleared after breakfast and was clouded over shortly after the noon hour but I managed to get more imaging in during that break than the past few months combined :o The first views through the LS80T showed little activi...

Franco...

After weeks of mostly cloud covered skies it was nice to have a clear morning!

It has clouded over since lunch so I will have to see if anything else comes of the region.

Something brewing Dec 9th

Hi all... I had clear skis this morning and the western limb has a bit of activity where AR2729 is rotating off the disk.
