Sol from the 18th of April 2019.

Post by eroel » Fri Apr 19, 2019 4:35 pm

Hello:
Stayed at home fixing my Meade 102mm f/9 refractor, the one I use for CaK images.
I am changing the focuser (got it at NEAF) and will repaint the tube, so could not take images with it.
Weather has been very hazy and hot, plus a terrible air contamination on the city these vacation days.
Used the Solarmax 90-DS and the 102mm f/7 Stellarvue fitted with a 4X Baader tellecentric and an old Daystar T-scanner.
Thanks for looking and wish you all a sunny and nice weekend.
Eric.

A great set Eric! A decent focuser is always the way forward.

Hi:
Thank you guys for looking, had more than 15 days of no imaging due to my trip to N.Y., so starting up again was difficult due to the fact that I had taken down from the mount the 102mm f/9 Meade refractor, so to replace the focuser.
Mark, you are right, but my old 3" China focuser (reliable) that was mounted on the Meade was the one taken off a 12" RC scope, so it was too big and heavy for the refractor, so I got a light 2" nice China focuser at NEAF and had to make some changes to the setup, specially to my home made motofocuser. :-((
Best wishes to all the fórum friends.
Eric.

I am glad to see your wonderful images again Eric, I'm missing the CaK though :) I hope you get that up and running again soon.
:bow
I hope you have had a wonderful Easter weekend.
