July 30th Observations

I finished the month of July and my last post in  Latest Observations .

Today is clouded out with no hope of observations, so all new observations will be posted here.

Yesterday's Sun showed new sunspot activity, even though conditions were somewhat cloudy.

The awesome solar filaments taken in hydrogen alpha light were amazing. On one had I was pleased to see them but on the other hand I wished I'd had a bigger hydrogen alpha telescope.

July 24th Hydrogen alpha light solar pictures uploaded to Photobucket:



Welcome to my new blog. I am a telecommunications trainer by day and solar observer during breaks and observe the wonders of the night. I use affordable techniques to take snaps of the Sun, Moon, planets and anything else I can get on my limited equipment. This photo was taken on March 7th this year, using a 127mm Maksutov and cheap digital camera.

I will soon start posting regular observations here from August, as I finish my old blog: http://philippugh.comlu.com/Latest_Observations.html

I have a new promoted video and will update this every few days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w10sNA_yn3M
