I’ve had this for several years. Was pretty good until 29JAN2019, which is the last image I get. Got a reply to an email about 18 months ago, but no reply to 3 I’ve sent since January 2019. Looks like another piece of “abandonware”. Too bad. Guess I will just have to set up one of my Coronado h-alpha scopes and see for myself!
Is this a joke? Displays a solar image from 2016!
