Walking on the Moon

AVX survives tumble delivers Sun


Recommended Posts

AVX been outside for month with tarp, survived, rain, hail & most recent a brutal 4' drop right off tripod impacting hard ground that bent both scope lock down handles 45 degrees ( forgot weight was on bar when unscrewing mount to check tripod level ).  Decided not to open it / look inside, instead dust off, hammer to levers / plug it in see what happens.  Under couple sec of error PHD2 ASCOM guiding last night before clouds moved in / seems to be in working order, knock on wood.  Today a quick 1700 of 3000 frame stack in AS, ed-80, astrozap filter, asi174mm.

Interesting images, observed solar from uk and the same spots.

The longer set had more structure when I observed so it's changed over time, could not observe yesterday as I was out all day.

Glad the AVX is doing ok.
