Re: Reflectors for solar imaging

SIMPLY, AS LONG AS THE OBJECTIVE-LENS IS COVERED WITH A SUITABLE FILTER - YES, BUT AS YOU ALREADY HAVE SUITABLE NON-REFLECTOR SCOPES + THEIR RELEVANT FILTERS, SO USE THEM FIRST AND PUBLISH THE REULTS FOR SOLARCHAT TO PERUSE...

Re: Spencer Observatory Build

INDEED NIC, THE BENEFITS OF AN OBSERVATORY OVER THE SETTING-UP AND PACKING AWAY OF THE ASTRO AND PC-GEAR ARE WELL PROVEN, OF WHICH YOU HAVE NOW REALISED WITH YOUR EXCELLENT NUBEY OBSY.

Re: Solar Halo 29 05 2022

HELO-FLIGHT TRAINING IS A TAD EXPENSIVE FOR THE COMPLETE COURSE FOR A LICENCE, BUT CERTAINLY TO ASK FOR A FLIGHT WHEN THE WEATHER IS SUITABLE FOR PHOTOGRAPHING A "GLORY" - WHEN THE SUN IS HIGH-ENOUGH AND THE HEO'S SHADDOW CAN BE SEEN, COULD BE AN ANSWER. LIKELY THAT THE CAPTAIN/PILOT WOULD...

Re: HA - 28 May (FD & closeups)

UPPING THE APERTURE FOR SOLAR DOES HAVE ITS' BENEFITS VIN, YOUR CAPTURES ARE CERTAINLY HARD TO BETTER. CLOSE-UP'S OF COURSE CAN WELL BENEFIT FROM LARGER APPERTURES, BUT TO KEEP THE RESOLUTION HIGH-ENOUGTH WITH A SMALLER APERTURE, DOES OFTEN ALLOW FOR CROPPING-OUT UNWANTED PARTS OF THE CAPTURE AND EN...

I WILL CARRY-ON FOLLOWING CYCLE #25 FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE JAMES AND WHEN ABLE, WILL POST MY COMMENTS AGAINST THE SOLARCHATTER'S OWN POSTS, BUT WILL NOW USUALLY ONLY BE ABLE TO KEEP THOSE BRIEF, AS TYPING THOSE REPLIES IS VERY DIFFICULT AND EXTREMELY SLOW TOO.
