    Changing times

    Nice post Gordon. I started out doing solar observing about the same time as you and there was nearly always some activity in WL. Along came the solar minimum and countless blank days. That’s why I turned to Ha earlier this year. Thank goodness I did. Going slightly off topic, it is a well recognised fact that swift numbers have plummeted in this area over the last few years, so much so that an organisation called Swift concern Scotland came into being. In Glasgow and the surrounding areas the main cause seems to be the lack of suitable nesting sites. As the old tenement buildings were being renovated new facing boards were fitted and the birds no longer have access to spaces under the eaves of the roofs. Nest box schemes have been introduced but it will be a long process before obvious effects are seen.

    New binoculars

    If you are mainly going to be using them for bird watching then one essential feature is that the bins must be waterproof. Some of the Astro bins suggested are fine for star gazing but you do not stargaze in the rain.

    Mount for Skymax 90

    This is the set up I use with my Mak 90. A Neewer photo tripod. I have replaced the ball head with a TS travel AZ head.
