The big 'dinosaur' filament continued to be the main attraction as it rotated further onto the solar disk, and this region showed n...

Re: What's wrong???

Maurits... Like Marty and others have said, I'd take the reducer out and find the correct tuning setting and see how the image looks without extra optics like the reducer in place.

Re: Feb 10th - A Bit of an experiment!

Hi David...

The scope certainly looks good for WL work, and will be interesting to see how it performs stopped down. On the plus side, there are some CaK proms visible so hopefully the scope can made to work.

Re: Today's SUN (20190210) beautiful PROM

Hi Pedro...

Glad you caught some sun between clouds...pretty quiet the past week or so. That prom on the NE is still going, did you see any of the proms on the eastern side today?
