  1. Perpetual Calendar

    Looking good Gina, is it possible you can add an extra day for the weekend so we can have an extra day off work? 🀞
  2. Sun HA 15.8.17 (+ Frankenscope Test!)

    Nice one Chris, the Frankenscope is certainly showing much better detail πŸ˜€ For a start you can easily see the spicules all the way around the limb of the disc, the plaged area is also more substantial πŸ˜€Much better all round in my opinion.
  3. New portable Solar set up

    Thank you 🌻I think this will be a keeper, it works very nice on the both the spotting scope and dark side fronts too. Nice versatility for such a simple set up πŸ˜€
  4. By your description of your views in your initial post it sounds like your Quark is fine,🌻20 times in two years is not what I would call a lot of use so maybe you just need to be a little more active πŸ˜€ (no pun intended)
  5. The Quark does show them, there just has not been any around on the days we have had clear skies in the UK πŸ˜€ There have been quite a few in the last couple of years.... do you have the prominence version of the Quark?
  6. heads up nice proms 13-8-17

    Will do Charl, it is still very sunny here so fingers crossed, If it is still sunny after taking the dogs for there epic walk I will switch to the 110mm πŸ’₯
  7. heads up nice proms 13-8-17

    Nice one Charl, I haven't been up that long but the first thing I did was set the solar scope up and had a quick peep ( the second thing I did was get dressed πŸ˜€) There are some lovely proms on display this glorious morning and the surface is looking just as bubbly as ever 🌻
  8. Clear from midnight here, I saw 6 metoeors in 3 hours all of which were very bright and heading toward the moon from north to east πŸ˜€ I was also observing and didn't fully concentrate on counting meteors. Very clear night and got some lovely views of the Moon, many doubles and coloured stars, Almach and the Garnet looked very vibrant πŸ˜€
  9. Wow, goto

    Nice one Jules, goto certainly has its merits it is possible to see hundreds of targets in one sitting .......
  10. Moon Dial Clock

    Or should I have said "Clever cogs" 😁
  11. Moon Dial Clock

    Very nice indeed Gina πŸ˜€Clever clogs or what .......
  12. Nice one Nick, I managed a huge session last night and spent most of the time between the Moon and Cassiopeia and switching scopes. I too was amazed just how much the Moon washed the sky out last night πŸ˜€
  13. heads up nice large loop prom 10-8-17

    Nice one guys, some great images .... it looks like the arcing prom from Startrek that the Enterprise flies through with 110mm πŸ˜€ It is a big one.
  14. Cheers my friend πŸ˜€ You can never have too many options with this hobby πŸ‘Œ
  15. Show us your Solar Observing Equipment

    Not too sure... probably the Lunt 1.25 with built in NDF as it will fit into both scopes πŸ˜€ But if I get a 2" SCT cliclock this may change to a 2" wedge πŸ˜€
