Sol from the 2nd of June 2018.

Post by eroel » Sun Jun 03, 2018 9:36 pm

Hello:
Got in the late afternoon to the rural observatory on the 1st of June and it was clouded, so had to wait until the 2nd of June to get the observatory running.
The sun looked good, but spent almost 2 hours trying to get my old Losmandy HGM200 mount running. Had to change the battery and reprogram the mount again, so by the time I opened the sliding roof, it was hazy and cloudy.
It is terrible to have to read the instructio manual, so to get it programmed, I had forgotten how to do it, (probably some of you have had the same experience) :?
Anyway I aimed the 6" f/12 AP refractor fitted with a 2X Baader telecentric and the old ATM Daystar Ha filter to the sun, and got some results.
Thanks for looking.
Best regards to all,
Eric.

Very nice Eric! I hate it when these gremlins crop up and cut into an observing session.
