ONLY using a 6" scope ???

Finally re mounted the head Ha

On new legs, now if it only stops raining

THE MOUNT THAT COMES WITH the Skywatcher mount is absolute rubbish, and has to be replaced

Skywatcher Heliofind Mount arrived LOOOOVE the 12v option I didn't know about

Mount arrived

LOOOOVE the 12v option I didn't know about

No way would I mount a decent scope on the supplied mount though it is one of the worst I have had, about as solid as a jelly, using EQ5 legs

I have the setup in the photograph

I have the setup in the photograph.

Quark daystar Ha, 72mm Ed

1. Would you expect to see granulation and detail on the sun visually, see photo 2, NOT mine.

2. If so what am I doing wrong as all I ever see is a plain sun no detail

Thanks
