Observing location
Chelmsford, UK

The Sun would be too low to see from my main telescope so I set up this portable system in the NE corner of the garden where I could follow the sun down to around 4 deg above the SW horizon. This is a Celestron C6 (0.15m, f/10) with an ASI294MC Pro camera on an NEQ6 mount.
