Today's Proms & Active Region in HR, HA & CAK | Sept 4th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Tue Sep 04, 2018 10:16 pm

Heya,

Named storm "Gordon" has been dumping clouds and rain on us all weekend, as it moves through the West coast of Florida up towards the panhandle. Hurricane Florence is right behind it, so I'm sure to get more bad weather. Plus whatever that dinky storm is following it. Some late in the season storms, but back to back here they come. Sigh. Regardless, I was able to get some data through some clouds and sucker holes in HA & CAK.

Excellent works!

Wow!! I do love your CaK shots, all are wonderful though. I hope your little observatory doesn't get blown away, have you ever had a direct hit?

I have been hit by storms and Cat 1 level hurricane, no problem. Had a micro-burst slam us too. No problem. The walls can take a direct Cat 1 and the roof has heavy duty turn buckles in all 4 corners. Since I'm not on the direct coast line, I don't get anything stronger than Cat 1 winds. Anymore more powerful, I'm not worried about, as something stronger would destroy my oak trees and potentially damage my home and vehicles and stuff, I don't care about the observatory in that event lol. I built that thing for $1500.

Very best,
