Three new pieces of solar eye candy coming around. Guess that means a week of rain for me. :)

Well done Robert. Nice capture.

I remember a time about ten years age while working in Anchorage, Alaska I was moved to a ground floor with a large window. Didn't see many pigeons but I had moose coming by all the time looking in the windows. That can be distracting.

Just checking the SDO Atmospheric Imaging Assembly site. Looks like Old Sol is rotating a medium size bit of eye candy our way.

Re: ZWO Camera

Hi I recently purchased a ZWO 174MM and had the same problem. I tried it in my Televue-85, a Televue-102, and a Lunt 80mm Ha scope. In OA capture I had the same problem as you. Nothing but a white screen no matter what exposure that I used. I saw in some of the forums that many people were using Fir...

ISS Transit question

Question for the group.
Where do you go to find out when a solar or lunar ISS transit will be visible from your location?

As AR 12529 moves closer to the edge it appears that SDO is showing two small sun spots rotating our way.

Hi everyone. Thanks for the kind comments. Eric When my Cave was built in December 1974 I lived in Santa Ana, Ca. I have been to the Cave shop twice but to my regrets Tom was not there so I did not get to meet him. Everyone at his shop was wonderful. Sad the way the business dissipated after he left...

Solar Ha 2016-03-26

Just finished processing some images from Saturday. Stayed up half of the night looking at Jupiter in my 1974 Cave 8" F/8.

Lunt 80mm PT B1800, DMK-41. Processed in IMPPG and Images plus.

Constructive criticism is welcomed. I am still muddling through these processes.
