Brilliant Solar Observing...
« on: Apr 22, 2020, 18:34:57 »

I found that trying to focus by hand seems to knock the scope of a bit so, i put my autofocus on it and its fantastic. There was a wonderful tree like prominance , really clear because of the fine focusing.Will try to image tomorrow as the wind should have dissipated.

Well that's it - you've jinxed the summer now having bought a huge new bit of solar kit!
Membership of the SolarQuest Owners Club UK must be very exclusive.

Looks very nice Roger, can't wait to see what it can do.
