Another observing session with the SolarQuest mount and cloudy skies. After first alignment (Heliofind) it helps to cover the solar sensor. Tracking was great for about 3h

Thanks Pedro I was wondering about those mounts.I have not been very active in Solar of late but did manage a bit of a break on a recent outback trip.

Thanks guys

Everything is OK, the hurricane was the biggest since 1842. Rain and strong winds during the night

Derek: SolarQuest is a great little mount for outreach and solar observation, it works like a charm

What kind of dovetail do you use to handle the PST to solarquest sadlle?
Can handle the PST to solarquest sadlle with Versatile L-shaped dovetail bracket by rotating the sadlle to 90 degree?
Aleixo
