Solar Imaging on a warm day - (Finally)
30 April 2013
A cloudy early morning gave way to a bright and sunny day and finally - some warm temps. Setting up the C102mm Refractor and the CG-5 mount with the very versatile Baader Full aperture solar filter. It's hitting 75 degrees as I post this now in the afternoon.
Sunspot groups #1732 & #1734 look good and should put on a good show...
#1731 looks like a paint splatter...
and little #1735...all by himself...
It was a bit bit breezy, so I had to contend with slight OTA shake, but the session turned out well. I also shared views with passerbyers who enjoyed the view.
