  8. It's all in the Eye

    Went out yesterday morning for the first time in 3 weeks. set up everything only to find the Sun does not appear in my setup area until the afternoon now. So started to disconnect everything when this little Robin started singing in the tree nearby. Swung the scope onto it and started Videoing. On checking the Video took a snapshot of the Sun reflected in the Birds eye. Does that qualify as Solar Imaging Lucky Me Pat
  9. the lovely double AR today 6-9-17 "updated"

    Were you getting all that sun from Charl. 50 miles down the road and still blanked out for the 4th day. Still to get a first view of the new AR. Well I can always look at yours mate. Pat

  14. Check the general condition of the Tube for dents etc. Dents will not effect the seeing but are a good indication to how the OTA has been treated. Check down the OTA inside and have a good look at the Primary Mirror. Should be clean and no Cracks. Check the spines on the secondary mirror for bends and also that the adjusting screws are all there for collimating Test the focuser is not stiff or loss. On the mount, check the clutches all work and it moves freely in Alt and Dec. Check to see the leg adjustment screws are OK. Check the bolts for adjusting the Polar alignment are not bent. Ask the seller if they are a member of SGL :). Always a good sign. I am sure others will give other advice. Pat
