The Moon & The Sun

Postby Aratus » Tue May 17, 2016 4:37 pm

Last night (16th) I went out to observe the moon. However within 15 minutes it clouded over.
I managed to get a photo of the whole moon.

This morning there was plenty of blue sky. I went out to see what was happening to the sun. Within 15 minutes it had clouded over! :( I think the sky is getting its payback for giving me a cloudless day last Monday! :D

The sun has a bit of a 'bruise' on it at the moment. (AR2546). It is big enough to be visible through eclipse glasses.

I managed to get 1 close up of AR2546.

I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
