May 7th as seen through a PST and Questar

Post by Astrophil » Tue May 07, 2019 11:34 pm

Skies looked a little iffy this morning so the small scopes had their chance to shine. First up was the PST for a quick overview then the little Questar for a closer look at the active regions. Both are a breeze to set up but I do miss the larger aperture. Solar imaging is enjoyable no matter what scope is used.
