Re: AR2817 * AR181(8) today for 20-4-2021

Yes James that is correct and with AR2816 giving out a flare including X-ray emissions that have affected radio-comms on Earth, it is certainly getting exciting too..

Re: Nooby question about mounting solar scope

Welcome Fed with your question. I understand the Solarquest is a fine mount for this purpose, but you have more or less answered your own question by providing the weights of the items. The Binoviewer is probably heavier than what you have said though. Also as long as you understand what the limitat...

Thanks Richard and yes such a plethora of AR's and spots too, is an imagers and visual-observers dream - at last. AR2816 has also flared overnight, so could be very busy on the disk... I see this morning that as many as 15-spots are listed, but I thinks that's a little "overkill"... CLEAR ...

Re: IS MY PRESSER TUNER OK

Well-good to now-know that we have sorted your issues with using SharpCap by adjusting the Exposure-times down for the Ha captures Peter.

Now its' "Practice Makes Perfect" time.

Hopefully you will be able to post some images on Solarchat, in due course.

Re: April 19 2021 Observations. Visual and Imaging.

Well-good captures James and now with AR2717 in the N.W. and the newbie as (AR2818) at last a plethora of spots to choose from.
Hopefully tomorrow if time and the clouds allow, I might get some images as the observatory is now operational again after a few mods...

Re: LOOK WHAT'S COMING ROUND THE BEND !!!

Thanks Franco and it was beaten at the posts, by another newbie as AR2817 in the N.W., but I guess that the S.E. will now be AR2818...
It certainly is well active as previous flaring at the limb.

Re: halpha sun on 19 April

Excellent captures Stephane.
If I'm not mistaken, you have captured the beginning of the new AR in the N.W., so to add to another new one in the S.E., should be interesting..

Well done
