New look for the solar set up
« on: 14:05:46, 05 October, 2016 »
I got the hump having to keep taking out the DSO camera on the triplet for the quark just to find out that the seeing was carp,  So at Kelling I decided to purchase an Achro as that's all I needed to solar image. 

I picked up a 80mm x 600mm F/L scope for £120,    It was a disgusting green at first but I purchased some vinyl wrap & gave it a new lease of life.

I also forgot to add,  it's also a warm welcome home to the LXD55 mount that made it back to me after about 8 years.
