Franco...

After weeks of mostly cloud covered skies it was nice to have a clear morning!

It has clouded over since lunch so I will have to see if anything else comes of the region.

Something brewing Dec 9th

Hi all... I had clear skis this morning and the western limb has a bit of activity where AR2729 is rotating off the disk.

Re: Finally Some Sun - 4th December

Looks like a good fix to be able to make a small portable scope. Imaging adds the complication of having power for equipment like laptops and filter power supplies...not impossible but more gear to move.

Best of luck getting a system put together.

Re: Another Quark Question

Thanks for the heads upon this point Derek! I had a potential source of a lightly used Quark Chromosphere and a 'clearance' new Prom model in the past month and was thinking of trying one of them as the second etalon in a DS system behind the DSII module on the modded CR150. The setup that had me mo...

Finally Some Sun - 4th December

Good evening everyone... It appears to have been a full month since the last imaging session (Nov4th), and weather has been the main limiting factor. This past Tuesday (Dec 4th) was the first day that was clear from sunrise to sunset so I couldn't pass on the chance to take a look and grab a few vid...

Another Quark Question

Hi all modders... I am sure there has been info posted about removing the built in telecentric from the standard Quark models, but I have not been able to track the details down. If you remove the built in telecentric I assume you can mount it with a different amplifier (Powermate for example) to be...
