;D
Why are there so many fewer chats posted on solar chat II than I (when it was the Coronodo site).
One of the reason's may be nobody is posting good solar photos.
The other may be too difficult to transition to the new site (but I found it easy enough).

Does anybody know how many sucessfully transferred over?

Perhaps Meade could send an e-mail to old members with a link to easily transfer over.

I found trouble transferring over. The reason people aren't posting such good photos is that the Sun is very quiet and that its winter in the northern hemisphere, so most of us can only observe the Sun at lunchtimes during the week.

I managed to snap some small prominences from Hungary and you can look up the observations on my web site:

I was pleased with a photo I took of the Moon while there. I was only using binoculars and a 3.2 megapixel digital camera.
