Re: CBSAP shutting down September 1st

Dear Stephen!

I am so glad to have met you at NEAF many times and experienced the enthusiasm that you radiate. I hope that you still enjoy meeting young people and will spread the word of solar view enjoyment, even in these low solar activity times.

Best regards from

Re: SUN 20180703 animated gif

Fantastic! I can watch it over and over and still find something new.
Question: I have problems finding a program to align the single frames. I have tried Registax5 and 6 but none of them will align my images.

Best regards

Re: Spring ???

Hi Brian! You have a wonderful observing site. I hope spring will come to you soon. Here at 60 degN in Norway there is still some snow on the ground but the clear patches are getting bigger every day.

Re: NEAF

Hi!

I was scheduled to go but had to cancel due to illness in my family. My club member, Tove Gudim will be there, may be you can contact her. She is heavily into solar observation and photography.
I hope you will have a good show and I miss being there.

All the best from Oivind Tangen, Norway

Hallo! I am back home after a wonderful 15 day trip to the US visiting friends in Oregon and Washington. We had our base outside Spray OR.
