    No I don't Keith. She sneaks up behind me and hits me over the head now. At least I get to see other stars in the day time.

    Solar sketching is fantastic.

    I do it before 3 years but no only in my pencil but a 3D in my laptop.

    Here is the main form.

    Take it from kanzelhohe.

    So first fix my sketch from the eyepiece and next making copy paste from kanzelhohe archieves to my main form of what had i see before inside my eyepiece.



    Fantastic work and if you want infos tell me buddy.

    I say this. The results is fantastic. With this way you see in the screen all the eyepiece observation.

    Start to use it again in bad seeing conditions.

    That's very impressive , I wish I could get involved in looking at the "Sun" I thinking about a solar filter for my powerseeker EQ80. As for AP, I'm not a very promising candidate . I can't wait to read Glenn's thoughts on your photo, I've had nothing but , clouds, overcast, rain, more rain. and more rain and now if the skies would clear up I could get a view on. I was so upset that I went to the planetarium one day to get my astro fix. Keepem coming Bill, I enjoy looking at your photo's and your great advice. Living life through the eyepiece

    Thanks Ronnie. You can see a lot with a white light filter and there should be lots of sun spot activity this year. Solar Addict Bill

    Bill, I asked a fortune teller to look into your future and she saw you with a SolarMax 90 double stacked with a BF30!

    I hope that she meant that somebody was going to give one to me. I can't wait.
