What kit do you use? thread.

Post by MjrTom » Wed Feb 22, 2012 2:26 pm

Hello guys and gals

I was wondering if there would be any interest in people sharing photos and descriptions of what kit they use for solar viewing/imaging?
I know I would be interested. :)
Maybe a dedicated thread where people can post. Just an idea ;)

Mark,
By default there's a lot of detail over in the "Solar Scope Modifications" section, but yes, we don't have a "show and tell" area.....yet!
