I've been out of town for a couple of days, and I have some observations there for a few nights. The sky there was not particularly good, but I've conducted some low power observation with my Canon 10x30 IS as well as a few short exposures with my Canon 450D on my Takahashi TG-SP 2. I'll write some separate entries for them later.
Back to the Sun, AR1153 is around when I observe today. Seeing 3/10, transparency 5/10. No big activities.
