Sunny 5th April 2021

Post by Montana »

Well, no snow here just clear blue skies all day with a very icy wind. The skies were crystal blue but as a cold front had passed overnight I knew the seeing would be bad. However, not that bad, probably the worst I have ever seen. I couldn't barely see the Sun in CaK, it was like looking through the C11 :lol: so don't look too closely at these images :)

Morning Alexandra.
Considering the cold. windy and seeing conditions, you have certainly very-well captured the action (or lack of it - except the proms & AR2813)...

Thanks for sharing
Terry

Very nice, Alexandra. Your HA FDs with the Solarscope are sublime. Nice calcium images too under challenging conditions.
