Holiday pics

Post by Montana » Sun Jun 21, 2015 6:12 pm

Just a few PST pictures with the DMK41 from Saint Valery Sur Somme. I must say the weather was infinitely better then 100 miles away across the water :) sunny but still a wicked wind.

So three days of solar out of six, not too bad.

Hi Alexandra,

Thanks for sharing your holiday pic. What lovely images !!

Excellent images, Alexandra. Nice capture of the eruption....... and seagull.

At least you managed to get a solar fix on your hols. ;)

Thanks everyone, it was great to be able to view the sun during the week as it is never in existence at the weekends, it was an unusual sight in the sky for me :)

Alfred, you need to use a short shoulderless nosepiece to get focus with the PST https://www.flickr.com/photos/alexandra ... 535593245/
However if you have a very brand new PST they have lengthened the eyepiece holder for some odd reason so even this fix won't work, you will have to reduce the eyepiece holder down in length.

Fantastic quality for a PST. My club has one of these and I do not think it performs that well. Glad you had clear skies on you holidays.
