Thanks again, Altair...
« on: 22:27:21, 15 May, 2016 »
After the views through a couple of the Daystar Quark's at Kelling this year, I finally  decided that Si, Ade, Chris & Nige were right in that we get more time to look at our nearest star than all the others put together (yeah yeah yeah yeah... I know....)   AND the weather is better when solar observing  :whistle: :whistle:

Sooooo... I plumped for a Daystar Quark Chromosphere from Altair Astro....  Rang up on the Thursday & had a chat with Ian.... ordered later that day.... dispatched on Friday & arrived on Saturday just in time for a break in the lousy clouds to see some "stuff"!

Thanks boys for the advice & prompt service  :big_clap: :thumbup:

Now for some "fun in the Sun"!

Phil

You'll not regret it Phil and Rog, you know you want to so you may as well do it sooner rather the later as we're just about to enter the solar minimum !!

May the 4th be with you....

TBH, 

I was so tempted I nearly added it to my basket but @ nearly 900 quid, & then more for a ERF I decided not to.  Also I'm not getting much imaging done at the moment anyway to justify the expense. 

(apart from tonight I have managed to collect some Photons )
