Re: Old school solar observation

Oh My Pedro, good to see your museum items are getting Sun-tanned today - as they should be on occasions.

Memories are made of these.

Re: Heads Up 17th May

So Ella, is it the running or the de-clocking that are the "silly things" ? What is far from silly though, are your excellent screen-shots again and yes of course you have spotted the newbie in the N.E., so well done there and that one - could be very interesting over the next-days... Best...

Re: May 17 2021 Observations.

An excellent report James and you've shown the new AR in the NE with what appears to be a very active region and the spot looks big from the extreme-angle view. Let's hope it give some interesting action over the next 10-days or so as probably AR2824. Weather here today, just gone through very-heavy...

Re: Splotchy Images

Exactly as Ella/Stardust5838 says, so if you rotate the camera and the Dust Bunnies - do not move, then the camera is the suspect. A reminder then, that to always and immediately the open-end of the camera is as well as all optics - covered with the dust-caps as soon as they are opened to the elemen...

Maybe some more action over the side as a small AR is about to emerge with another larger one too. Let's hope so and glad you had some clear-skies today, compared to here. :hamster:
