Solar Observations

Having replaced my Daystar 0.7 angstrom with a 0.5 Angstrom filter this year, and than added a a Daystar Calcium K line filter, and received my new Paramount ME mount - all at the end of April I have started to do some more serious observations.

One of my first events with the new filters was the transit of Mercury May 7th 2003, and after getting all up and running at home on return from the annular eclipse in Scotland I have now begun some more detailed solar imaging.

Here are some of the more interesting links
