Solar Observing in the Dominican Republic - Al-Paslow
"When you called we were just observing what I considered a very notorious and large chain of sunspots just crossing the solar meridian...I even got scared of flares pointed our way!  I knew right away this wasn´t a normal sighting.  I even told you about it!"
"We were at the local Botanical Garden´s parking lot with a few members of the group.  We didn´t care much about the hot asphalt." Taken in a new electrically guided Celestron 8 inch SCT with a mylar filter.  The image was a beautiful white with lots of resolution.

SLR Camera on T-mount, 8” Celestron SC Telescope with f 6.3 reducer.  Mylar filter.  (Click on any image to enlarge.)
