forum very slow

Is it just me or is the forum very slow, sometimes it takes minutes to open one topic and I have a few tabs on the go at once to try and save time?

Re: 9th Aug Sunspot movements

We had the exact same discussion here John a while a go https://solarchatforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=305246&hilit=white+light+continuum# I think the conclusion was that these filters were so broad at around +/- 8nm (80A) (like the Baader K line filter) or 10nm for Baader Continuum (100A) that they...

Re: H-alpha and H-beta SHG full disk images from 7 Aug -- good seeing

Very interesting!! the third link shows that h-beta is very similar to the wings of h-alpha (the offband image in h-alpha that they show). So I reckon it's height is between halpha and photosphere.
