The sky this evening is partly cloudy and hazy. It's been a while since I was able to do any astro imaging even on the Sun and Moon so I brought out some old scope from my storage room to feed her some photon lights :)LOL . I took a single image of the Waning Gibbous Moon using Canon EOS M6 mirrorless DSLR on Borg 76ED refractor at prime focus with 1/500sec at ISO 400 on sturdy tripod. I wasn't able to do more image shot as clouds and building obstruction started to interfere my super short session.

The sky this afternoon is partly cloudy and seeing is poor. I decided to use my portable solar setup with the Canon EF100-400mm this time. AR2717 Sunspot Group has lost its sunspot pore and is now only visible in the Ha wavelength as plage region. There is also a nice large eruptive prominence visible in the NE limb. Sky then gets cloudier and I have to quit imaging as I can hear thunder and sky dimming quite fast :(
