Re: PST Proms 14/01/12

Excellent results, those proms were beautiful to see!

I would tend to agree with Chris, try using less wavelets and let the proms be more wispy, I'm sure you will like it :)

Re: Collection of PST pictures 14th January

Thanks everyone :) Guess what! I've used the 100mm today, yippee!!!! I had a 45 minute window when the sun was just clipping the top of this tree so a few have a dangling branch but most are OK. I think I have a full disc but you never know until they are put together (takes about 12 panels). The su...

Still got a couple more to do but I know if I don't do them now I'll be doing tomorrows instead, I hope to try the Solarscope if I can.

Collection of PST pictures 14th January

Today the weather has been amazing and now we are 3 weeks from the solstice the sun has definitely moved in my garden and was at 16 degrees at noon. I still had to wait for tree branches and move twice but I could easily find places for the PST although the PST was being very difficult with regards ...

Re: Problem with PST

Oh Stephen! the thought of using a screw driver frightens me to death!!!! I've just had a look at the pressure and it is 1030mb which is exceptionally high, the temperature is only 1 degree. I think I will leave it. On Monday I am hopefully taking it to work and advertising it to come and view as pa...

Problem with PST

After visually using my PST with my niece 2 weeks ago I wasn't quite happy with the tuning. Today I had beautiful sunshine and noticed that I couldn't tune my PST to centreline in what I feel happy with as I couldn't turn it any further to the right. It never used to be like this? and for the last 2...

Re: "Absorbed" Sunlight

You certainly have a lovely blue sky! Several houses around me have huge arrays on their roof, I would love to do it too. However, we get lots of money from our government to do this but they are withdrawing it by April this year which is a terrible shame and will put lots of people out of work. It'...

Yes, why has the sun gone so quiet? is it because the weather forecast in the UK for the next 4 days is SUN??

Re: Solar obsrvering causes blindness!

They were having their eye removed anyway because of malignant melanoma, so I don't think it was a tragic loss to stare at the sun for research. So please don't worry.
