Re: Large ejection 7/28/2016

I havent looked at the ejection, but I would think it's hard to be hit by an excess of particles directly to result in spectacular aurora at lower lattitudes. Near the north pole, you would see constant aurora I would think regardless. In space, plasma ejections can fire off in any direction, so usu...

I don't see any abnormal issues with the blocking filter. Looking from the outside in. Although I am just looking at the top. I will include pictures, but do you mean there may be mold inside the BF? I want to buy a B600 anyways soon here, but I am not sure I want to take it apart just yet. I though...

Hello all, Making progress on my solar set up. Single stack, B400 BF. Thought I would test out the embedding feature here. I spend an hour getting tons of data just to delete it all accidently right before packing up. I decided it would be good to do some laptop housekeeping in the blazing sun and I...
