Re: A nice Christmas Card

BrianL Thank you. It's many years since we visited Anglesey & I must admit when I got the Card I had to check where Penmon Lighthouse is - extreme east of the island, of course. Nigel's son who took the 2020 comet photo (is now in his 2nd year at University). Even his Dad is much younger than me...

A nice Christmas Card

Christmas 2020 was a very sad time for our family. However, my old friend & colleague, Nigel, who I worked alongside long ago, sent us the nicest Christmas Card I ever received. As it happens Nigel's Wife is the only person I've ever known whose seen any of Jupiter's satellites using their unaid...

Re: FRUSTRATING start to 2021

Steve Thanks very much for completely solving that Sunspot problem. I have quite often picked up Sunspots in Ha images that I have either imaged or visually observed (or both) in White Light. But from what I recall they have always been very prominent Sunspots in W.L. So it seems possible some Sunsp...

The SUN - 5th January 2021

Three images now attached,
NO Sunspots visually observed, nor imaged, in White Light using my 88 mm refractor. However, the Sun provided more interest in Hydrogen Alpha light with regards both Disk detail & very particularly Prominences than I expected.

Re: FRUSTRATING start to 2021

Steve; sorry I'm late responding to your interesting comments. I'm particularly pleased you mentioned the small dark 4 o'clock dark spot on my 3rd January Ha disk image. I noticed that dark spot after initially processing the image using Registax Version 5, initially thinking it a likely Sunspot . H...

FRUSTRATING start to 2021

I needed to login using my password to get on the forum. Then typed a post & added three images only to then learn I needed to enter my password to download my supposed post & attachments - which then seemed to get demolished. Now this time I just hopefully attach my first three 2021 Sun ima...

The SUN - 29th December 2020

It was snowing here when I got up, later turning to rain. Things got better as the day progressed but still frustrating cloud interference, but in the afternoon,I did get some occasional visual glimpses of the Sun through my 88mm refractor & even managed to get a few short video clips replacing ...

Re: The SUN again

SkyBrowser and Steve, thanks for your comments. SkyBrowser - interesting what you said. Looking at my Hydrogen Alpha images the Sunspots seemed to me doubles, However, despite much cloud today (29th Dec) I glimpsed & imaged the Sun briefly in White Light. So that image will soon be appearing on ...

The SUN again

A cloudy day here today (28th) but yesterday was a bit better, though far from perfect. 27th December, was a mixed day. When I got up it was snowing, but only for few minutes. As the morning progressed I glimpsed the Sun & about 10:00UT I saw the nice Sunspot through thin cloud filtered 20x60 bi...

A very nice eerie Moon .
Ironically I can't use and never succeed in using my mobile phone for it's original purpose, because of my deafness. So I envy your success.

A Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve morning I visually observed the Sun using safely filtered 20x60 binoculars - surprise, surprise seeing a nice Sunspot, However, I attach a Christmas Card view of some alien mountains defying global warming with a covering of white stuff. (Dow Crag is extreme left, the Scafells mid-phot...
