This is not a qualified observation log, anyway.

Prepare to go down to the street to shoot Jupiter while it's still not too low. Packed all the stuff, found that the trolley is missing, after extensive search, found and go.

The trolley is a bit overloaded, anyway, a short walk only.

Walked to the park which I scheduled to go, it's hidden by building or whatever.

Came back to the street near my home, the pavement seems okay, but it's too narrow, afraid that I will be kicked out by police or whatever.

Gave up eventually... very hot, tired and all wet by sweat...

The sun is so active!

The sun is so active right now so that there're two filaments, some very nice plague and active region, sunspots everything except no huge prominence.

First time tried to shoot at f/36 but found it a bit noisy to use 1/500s. Let me try lower gain next shoot!

f/24 shots are all amazing to my eyes, b/w is better to detect over exposure, which is so easy for h-alpha imaging!
