Set up for an ISS transit but missed out -again, and a few minutes later managed a video run mostly cloud free.

Hi Ibbo,

Nice images. Looks like you have not a uniform adjustment of your etalons. There are differences between one side and the other.

Have you tried in getting more uniform bandwidth ? I also have two 60mm etalons and there are rotated 90° to each other.

It took me few weeks to get get really well adjusted but the invested time was it worth.

A few minutes here and there do not help with the tweaking.

:( that sounds like what happens to me for the last 6 times, beautiful blue sky, then you spot the one cloud and you just know it will hit the Sun for just that 1 minute the ISS passes, then it clears :( I feel your pain :(
A super full disc though :bow
