Thursday 5.7.18

Jonathan and I took it upon ourselves to investigate the solar filter system and attached it to the Skywatcher 80ED in the smaller dome.Most carefully following the instructions we were able to assemble the apparatus and point it to the Sun for observation and photography,with Jonathan's DSLR and Smartphone.Apart from a small prominence there was little visible activity on the surface but we were pleased that the system functioned properly.Peter attended the large dome to take current measurements.
There were lots of children about, We left at about 2.00pm
