The coolest thing about sites like this is that you can meet new people who have similar interests. Today, I hooked up with a user on this site who owns something I've always and only dreamed of ... a Coronado solar scope. His is the king of hill - the 90mm, on a very beefy Celestron mount.
He let me dink around with his scope today. I say "dink around" because I've seen the pics this gentleman can get through his scope. Mine were laughable, at best. It was a hot day, I couldn't get a clear focus and this was all new territory to me. So what I ended up getting were a few blurry prominence shots.
Still, I'm glad I got them. Now I want to get one of those bad-boy scopes so I can practice, practice, practice and perfect my skill. :)
