...for now...Today I dropped my dedicated Hydrogen Alpha telescope off at Lunt Solar Systems for a pressure tuner upgrade. Originally these scopes were built with a mechanism which allowed the user to tune the etalon filter by turning a small thumb-wheel. More recently, Andy Lunt made a great technological advance in tuning technology by developing an air pressure tuning system. Once I have the new system installed I will write more about it, however, you can certainly research it yourself on the Lunt website above.
Seeing conditions today were below average with a somewhat turbulent upper atmosphere and 15 mph winds here at the Lost Pleiad Observatory. This made seeing fine detail more difficult although with patience, several active regions and filaments were observed.
