Re: Flying Numeral

Very large, conjoined space boulders?
There appears to be slow, anticlockwise rotation or tumbling.

Update: My wife thinks the sun is broken.
So "somebody" is mending it with tape from a dispenser. :D

Excellent images BTW. :bow

Re: Travelling Solar 27th December

Congratulations on a fine set of images and photos. :bow You can probably confirm the benefits of countryside v towns for seeing and imaging. We follow the activities of a small number of narrow-boaters on YouTube. A cruise is very relaxing on the big 4k screen. The local canals were largely overgro...

Re: Seasons Greetings

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everybody. I have my RA drive on the desk so I couldn't image in today's glorious sunshine. Though I was able to have a quick peek in white light with the 90mm & Lunt wedge. Three clear spots in a row and uniform surface detail. Well worth a look if you can! :...

Re: Sony IMX253 mono cameras

I use an ASUS laptop which had only a small, 250GB, internal SSD. No HDD! So I went with Samsung T5 external SSDS on USB3 for a while. Bigger is better. 1TB holds an awful lot more videos than my [foolish] 250GB first purchase. Life is too short to be deleting anything and I might have captured a un...

I noticed the near vertical pointing altitude on the telescope.
Then I saw the round shadow on the ground.
Has Australia been moved nearer to the Equator? :cool:

Awful seeing with the sun only 13° in altitude through a white haze.

Yes Rusted, you are not alone with the bad weather affecting both our areas and the forecast is showing more to come. I'm just spending the down-time with some new-gear, so at least not all lost here and in any case so little time with the low-down Sun at the observatory, that at least I've somethi...

Ha Ha Rusted. My chief Flying Instructor taught me to "Stick my finger out, and if gets wet - it's raining" "If you can light a fag outside - there is not much wind" "Watch the way the smoke drifts, for wind-direction" "If you can't see the smoke, it was probably too-windy to light the fag outside ...

Re: November 9 2020 Observations

I don’t really intend to replace my visual exploits with imaging but use imaging to support it, much like I use GONG and SDO now though they will remain valuable because they show me what’s going on beforehand. I could see imaging replacing descriptions though if I got good at this. Images can easi...
