Thanks Mark.

Matt - I bought the LS80 in July of last year, just before the eclipse. I wasn't sure if I wanted a dedicated solar telescope at that point, but since then I have probably used (and posted pictures from) the solar scope about 10x what I do with my C8. I have been very favorably impressed with what this little 3" refractor can do.

Thanks Alexandra. My images never seem to look as good to me when I post them here as when I am editing them, but I was pretty excited about some of the detail I was seeing while processing that close up.
