Re: Quark Users

Many thanks for everyone’s feedback.

It’s definitely an issue with the Quark. The different scope and camera combinations produced the same effect, so back to the supplier.....

Cheers.

Re: Reflected Sunlight- Moon and NLCs

Many thanks Pedro, Maurits, Jack and Mark.

I'm hoping for another glimpse of some NLCs before the end of this extraordinary season, weather permitting!

Quark Users

For better or worse I've bought a Quark. The intention is to use it with my 250mm RCT for high res views. Late afternoon yesterday the Sun finally appeared and I was able to give it a test run for the first time. Despite using two different cameras and two different refractors I found some persisten...

Reflected Sunlight- Moon and NLCs

July 11th and a wonderful evening for some solar reflections. I almost didn't bother going out for a look, but when my wife came in the house after feeding our visiting hedgehogs in the garden she told me that the moon was beautiful and clear and that I should take a look. She was right. It looked w...

Re: Sunday Sun 7th July '19_Cycle 25

I must admit I was going to test the CaK wedge out in the afternoon as the sun emerged from the clouds but we both fell asleep after lunch and woke at teatime, either we are getting old or we got too used to siestas in Spain ;) Alexandra Ha...ha...so funny, Alexandra. Made me smile. At least you wo...

Re: Fridays Calcium Images - 5th July

Excellent post, Mark. Informative and with beautiful images.

I was in Redditch on Friday and experienced the same conditions that you did. Unfortunately I didn’t have any solar kit with me. Picnicked with family in the Park instead.

Re: ERF choice: new D-ERF vs. used C-ERF vs. other

Welcome ‘Bluecoast’. Best to pay the price, get a full size DERF and front mount it.

Sunday Sun 7th July '19_Cycle 25

Cycle 25.....yippee.... The seeing conditions were awful as these were taken in the late afternoon from my back garden here in the north-west of England. Nevertheless I was excited to see a small sunspot which has been confirmed to be an early one of cycle 25 and wanted to capture it in Cak and hydr...
