Thanks Pedro.
Good to see what I can't do here in S.E.England due to the thick clouds and rain too...

Cheers

Looks like some nice activity coming over the limb just as the clouds and rain arrive here! Thanks Pedro

Hi Pedro,

Always nice to see the setup. I thought the 3 coloured HA FDs are good in showing different perspectives of the Sun.

Another great series of images Pedro :bow

Tell us what your plan is for the new observatory...dome/roll-off, and what scopes will you mount?

Thanks Brian

I'm planning a small roll-off-roof 2x2m (exterior) to house a paramount ME and several OTAs (10" RCOS, TMB175, APM180, TEC140)

It will be ready this year, I hope. The pier is already bolted to the ground
