Hi Dan,

The black cover is against Sun and the umbrella against Rain :-)

Well thought.

Ha Ha !!!
So Dan, where do you hide under to either not get Sun-burnt or wet either ??

Good ideas, but what about the wind ?? (umbrella wise)..
I have never seen a step-ladder flying through the skies...

Cheers

That is the Lunt 102 mm ED with a Herschel wedge. Of course as soon as the sun rose above the trees the clouds rolled in. :(
