Friday May 10th

Post by David_The_Bears_Fan » Fri May 10, 2019 5:26 pm

Rough day today weather wise, clouds, showers and a bit breezy to boot. Still a few half decent size gaps in the cloud meant I had to try and get some imaging in. Not had a chance to image since AR12741 came around so I wanted to get a session in.Seeing was variable so results are not my best but I am reasonably happy.

Started out this morning with a gap big enough for me to grab lots of white light data.

Then another smaller gap came over this afternoon allowing me to shoot some Ca-K. Really did not expect to get much out of the data as the conditions looked very poor at the time but actually they have come out ok.

Thank you Christian, Alexandra. Yes, forecast here for Sunday looks good too but who knows what we will actually get!
