Full Disk Before Work - 14th May

Post by marktownley » Tue May 14, 2019 7:16 pm

Got myself out of bed this morning with enough time to play solar before work. Started off with the Lunt50 scope double stacked, while I like this for visual work, it's not my favourite for imaging. In the end went wit my ED60 with my nice Lunt 50mm etalon. There was bands of haze close to the horizon with the sun low down, but it didn't stop me imaging. Always a nice way to start the day!

Will try again in the morning assuming I get up early enough.

Defeated the alarm clock today then Mark :) Paid dividends with a nice disk. Need to make my mind up on the H Alpha upgrade :?

I admire your get up and go attitude and especially your images Mark. Excellent FDs.

A lovely disk, Mark. I share with you waking up early and imaging as a good way to start the day and have good seeing...
