Was Great To Get Out


Recommended Posts

After a long cold winter of cloudy, dull skys, nite and day, the sky this morning finally gave in to bright sun at 0° F at about 10am. So out came my new to me Celestron SS80 scope, my newly arrived 1.25" Lunt WL wedge, my Svbony 10-30 zoom all attached to my SW Solar HelioFind mount. I couldn't wait any longer, it has been a few months ! The views of several sunspots looked great even though they came and went as expected in a lite breeze. The views were also pretty glaringly bright, maybe due to icy moisture in the heating air, so I threw on a variable polarizing filter and the views improved 90%. Once again the variable polarizer prooved its virtues when it comes to solar viewing under the right conditions. It did feel good to get out, fingers xrossed for more !
