Solar Prominance and Rig


Some solar images from the weekend, and the solar imaging rig.

The new mount has had a bit of a modification, now triple the mounting options.

Have to watch the weight, this is the solar setup, for DSO work both Ha scopes come off and the 80mm refractor

mounts onto of the 12″, this also helps to balance out the CCD camera on the back of the SCT.

The clouds prevented any decent imaging of this prominence, it would have made a good time lapse.
