Re: TV Pronto 70mm F/6.8 (480mm) Grab & Go Solar Scope

Hi Pedro

Your telescope museum is coming along nicely :D
That's a lovely scope I had my best view of the veil nebula through one of these with a OIII filter many years ago.

By the way your water tower is just begging to be turned into a solar tower observatory, now that would be nice :P

With the unit attached to a machined fitting that you could get hold of with one hand whilst turning the outer housing with the other hand it would be muc...

Hi all
An image taken today of the new active area in the SE (may be AR12771) seems to be developing nicely but no spots yet.

Superb images Jochen.
They show the latest thinking of another reason why life exists on our earth, the fact that our sun is so unusually stable.

Re: Nice arching prom

Thanks everyone It's just nice to see some action. We have been clouded out, rained on, or the sun has just been blank when there has been a break for the past few weeks.

Nice arching prom

Hi All
I just got home and caught this nice big prom.
I only got one shot before some thin cloud rolled over, when that had gone the sun was behind next doors house.
It was a short lived prom you can catch it on the SDO dashboard.
Nice to see some activity.

Hi Terry Just wondering what tilter you actually tried on the cameras. On my opticstar camera the circuit board with the chip on it is mounted by four screws in the corners sitting on spacers. What I did was remove two spacers on opposite corners then used those two screws to tilt the board and chip...

Re: Sunspots 7/6/20 12765

That full disk is very nice.
It takes me back to my drawing days.
I must get back into it it's so much more relaxing than imaging.
Do you have any detail on how you make you drawing and what equipment you use, not just telescopes and bits but drawing materials as well.
Cheers Rod
