Hi, Pedro

Yesterday was a frustrating day. I set up twice and had to put things away twice. First, due to clouds and then I was briefly rained on.
Then my old CG5 mount tipped over after I set it down just inside my yard and cracked the protective plastic that covers the DEC motor.
Luckily the attached counter weight hit the floor first and took most of the punishment (it dented my hardwood floor, a big dent and a small dent when it bounced) The drive still functions and I used clear tape to cover the the gears with an improvised housing. The LS80 had been brought in earlier.

Thank you for your fine solar images and especially the "dinosaur". It reminds me to try and keep a sense of humour.
I did have some good experiences in the evening with some hi res lunar work.

Lou
