    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL
  2. Today's H-alpha sun 18.3.18

    Still snowing here and vert strong freezing winds. I have not managed one Solar session this month because of the weather. So nice to read your report that there is some activity.
  3. Prom Action Today 16-3-18

    Well done Charl on getting something. I have not seen a bit of blue sky this month.
  4. American enthusiasm over the moon!

    A lovely video. So nice to see people’s reactions.

  6. I do not think there is a niche for this in amateur astronomy Chris. Looks more like a rich mans toy to me, but it will be very interesting to see if there is a market for it. I have my doubts.
  7. Congratulations on your first scope. You had a lovely first light and that is a lovely first light report. I really enjoyed reading it. Do not be in too great a hurry to replace the eyepieces. Take some time learning how to get the best out of your new scope and you will be in a better position to decide what eyepieces you need.

    Managed to see them both last night using binos. Had to go to the local fields as they are too low from my garden.
