Solar activity - 20 Mar 2016


Recommended Posts

Derek, I too have been lucky and I have had a good hour of sunshine. Indeed there are are some nice proms about the limb, two of which are showing detachments :happy11: (2 O'clock and 6 O'clock positions ) The 6 O'clock prom looks just like a large gas flame. The clouds are back now but it was nice to get some viewing in.

I have just tried a Meade 5000 26mm Plossl that I have on loan, Iam pretty impressed with the views and it still achieved a full disc... the extra magnification also made a positive difference.

Thankyou Shaun, always seems to be something happening when I'm clouded out.

That reminds me I lent a Meade 5000 26mm Plossl to someone (not a forum member) about two years ago, not seen it since :)
