A short session from June 13th

Good day everyone... A beautiful clear day here on Saturday, and I planned to do some solar work once I got finished work at lunch time. Lunch was late (well I left work late), so I didn't have a lot of time and the seeing was poor by the time I got out to the scope. Glad I did get out as AR2765 was...

June 7th Session

Good day everyone... Finally a sunny Sunday that I didn't have to work, so I got to spend some time at the scope :) The bonus was the new activity that graced the disk and made a worthy target to image and experiment on!

Hi Dan...
