      Thanks for the heads-up!

        Not looking so good with the hazy smoky skies. We’re probably going to skip Eagle Bluff tonight. Plus the moon doesn’t set until after 1am. Nice for lunar observing though!

          I still plan to go somewhere. Do we need permission to use Root River?

              I heard that Dean might be working with Eagle Bluff, but not sure which night it was going to be. I’d like to go out.

                Mike, would you do Root River or Keller if Eagle Bluff isn’t an option?

                  If eagle bluff is a no go, I’d do root river.

                    Just talked to Dean. Looks like no Eagle Bluff tonight. So local viewing or Root River/Keller.

                      Ugh! Couldn’t be there that night. However I did some observing of the sun the day of 9-6-2021. As many of you may know the sun is ramping up it’s sunspot activity and currently is quite impressive. Yesterday I took a short video using the Starblast 4.5 in reflector with the Orion 6.3M pixel color camera. A single frame, (enhanced a little in Photoshop Elements) with the official SOHO sunspot numbers, is shown below.

                          Bringing the StarBlast to the soccer fields tonight.  Should be good for the moon craters Josef mentioned!

                            While under poor seeing conditions Jupiter still put on a good show just after midnight 9-19-2021. Image below used Meade 10″ SCT and Orion 6.3 M pixel color camera. Some image stacking with Registax6 and Photoshop Elements enhancement.

                                  Saturn on 9/23/2021.6 Seeing was better than last 2 days but certainly not great. Again used a 10″ Meade SCT with the Orion 6.3 M pixel color camera. Use Autostakker + Registax 6 to enhance.
