SO its been a significantly long period of time before posting again here ! The winter this year has been brutal not many clear nights and those that we have had have been just far too cold to function or on full moons.

The second January thaw is here and the snow is receding at the moment but this probably won’t last long — One good thing is that the snow mobile trails are closed so we could be out with telescopes if it was not cloudy !

So for the first post of the year i will add a reprocess from the summer this is the point of totality it is a HDR composite of a number of different frames and shows nicely the chromosphere around the sun — seen like a life time ago since August !
