Another Firey Sunset
The AZ fire continues, unchecked, and now burning over 350 square miles of land. It's now posing a threat to towns in NM. I tried again to get my dob up before sunset. I had it up, went to put in an EP and focus. Saw a sunspot perfectly. Went to grab a camera and attach it, and the sun moved below my fence line. Tomorrow I'm going to get this shot I want - an unfiltered shot of sun activity through a telescope, even if I have to drive to a field behind my house to do it.
