November 6 Sunlab

Yesterday I got the telescopes out for a Sunlab.  The lab was scheduled from 11:30 AM to 12:30.  It was cloudy right up to a bit after 11 and then it turned partly cloudy.

It was EXTREMELY windy ~ wind blowing from the NW about 24 mph made the actual temperature, 43 F, feel like 33 F!  I was sort of wondering how the mount for my 6" Celestron Advanced VX would handle that nearly gale force wind ~ lol  As Scotty would say "Aye, Capt'n! She handled beautifully."  Hah!

The other large scope is the school's 8" Celstron reflector.

Took a few pictures of the Sun while I was set up.....

And made this short video using the movie feature on the Rebel:
