Solar Vixen captures the spots in June


After a refurbishment and a a lick of paint my 60mm/f5 Vixen refractor is yet again ready for astro travelling the heavens.

I decided to turn the scope into a dedicated solar imaging/observing platform.

With the solar filter and Nikon D3000 in place I can quickly capture the day's solar image, plus the scope is easily transportable.

Here are some Sol images from the last week.







The Vixen 60mm is perfect for quick Sol imaging.  Fingers crossed for some July Sunspots....
