      The green flash that is sometimes associated with a rising or setting sun. It makes a lovely bright green flash.

      bought a SATA USB adapter, it allows you to acces your old hard drive like its an external hard drive so hopefully should be ok.

  17. looks like solar imaging is to be taking a back seat for a while
