I’m in Dallas at the moment at a conference including people from NASA. Some discussion on the Parker probe. Interesting stuff.

Re: Weekend Geomagnetic Storm 7th & 8th Oct. 18

Many thanks, Mark/Peter. Here's an updated one with added data from the DSCOVR satellite which illustrates the corresponding Bz magnetic variations within the solar wind (red line). As this turns south, there's a corresponding increase in geomagnetic activity. 20181009_coronal hole.jpg Thanks for yo...

Here are my magnetometer data captured throughout the event. The storm left our magnetic field ring...

Re: PST Mods... but, why not a 40mm SolarMax Mod?

Hi Marty,

I guess it would be done in the same way, or similar way, as my Lunt35 mod.

Re: HR images of AR2720 Aug 25, C14 EdgeHD versus 300 mm solar scope challenge

I would be delighted with either of these marvellous images, Christian. The seeing conditions here are so much the limiting factor. Maybe one day I'll visit and image from one of these 'golden' locations with optimal conditions :)

Re: Lunchtime Sun

Many thanks, Franco, Mark, Raf and Alexandra. Getting time on the scopes and having lovely sunshine can be quite a challenge, especially as we enter the autumnal period. Darn..... Roll on spring :)

In the meantime, good luck for those in the south as your season begins.
