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:

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
