Chugoku Mountains from my bed room / 寝室から見えた中国山地

I awoke to find very clear view of south-eastern horizen this morning.It is quite rare that I can see Chugoku Mountains tens of miles away in such cloudy sky.
So I took a picture of it by my iPhone (7:04AM).

The center is the bell tower of the Lutheran Church whose kindergarten I used to go.

H-alpha Solar through the thin clouds(20cm-BINO)

Far behind the real image by both eyes, a large prominense can be seen near the north pole when the clouds are less. It is impossible for the cheap WIFI-CAMERA to express the real image of the both eye viewing.


H-alpha-Solar observation by the 20cmBINO / Hα太陽、20cm-BINO

The first thrilling experience of H-alpha-Solar observation!
12cm aperture stop—- 20cm-f=1400mm objective ——R2 filter —- UV/IR cut filter —-EMS-UXL —–POWERMATE-4X— COMBO-QUARK-chromo——–LAVENDURA40mm  (140X)
After a while of twist and turns, the above arrangement is proved to be right for the best image.

EMS-UL for US completed

EMS-UL for the single use is ready to be shipped to the US.
I regret my EMS became famous as a component of the binocular telescope, before totally taking place of the traditional diagonal mirror/prism.
Of course, that’s far better than nothing, but I do regret so many senior manias still stick to the traditional diagonal mirrors with the stubborn belief of its superiority.
