Thanks guys

Everything is OK, the hurricane was the biggest since 1842. Rain and strong winds during the night

Derek: SolarQuest is a great little mount for outreach and solar observation, it works like a charm

Re: SolarQuest review

Another observing session with the SolarQuest mount and cloudy skies After first alignment (Heliofind) it helps to cover the solar sensor. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1934/44567745654_e4c45a17c7_k.jpg solar_imaging_session_20181013-02 by Pedro Ré , on Flickr https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1963/44...

Re: SolarQuest review

Tried the SolarQuest today for the first time with cloudy skies. The sun stayed in the field of view for about 4h but tracking was less accurate. Still works though with cloudy skies

We have two small spots (two ARs). Maybe they will be gone tomorrow, or maybe not
