Sunday Sun 18th November 18

Post by Carbon60 » Sun Nov 18, 2018 6:50 pm

We've had a lovely sunny weekend here, although not a huge amount of free time for me to image with a bunch of jobs to do around the home and garden. Anyhow I did manage an hr this morning, although the sky was a bit 'milky' and not ideal for any hi-res imaging, but I had a go anyhow using the modified 150 Ha which I pointed towards AR2727. I also ran the 72mm f6 /CaK Lunt B600/Omega combo for a partial disk.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Stu...

Great pics in Ha and CaK :bow

Early onset of winter here, with snow on the ground the past 2-3 weeks and next to no clear skies with the exception of a few teases :( It is to clear later in the week, but the daytime high for Thursday is forecast to be well below 0C (-7 if they are right) and could get down to -22C overnight :o
