    Here are some photos of a solar projector that I just made. For the optics I used a Alpen Optics 10x25 monocular. I am still waiting for the sun to produce some spots for my to try an see with it :(

    All I needed to hold the monocular to the tripod was a rubber band.

    This is the image of that sun that it was projecting. It is about 4 inches.

    I think that it's great but a bummer that nothing is going on for me to try an see with it. No sunspots, no transits, no eclipses. :(

    OMG, There is finally a sunspot for me to try and view!
    SpaceWeather.com says its sunspot number 11 and it's growing.
    Will things play out in order for me to see it?

    There is a thin all encompassing cloud layer that has me cheesed off :mad:
    I hope it burns off and no other clouds show up. My EQ is on stand by.

    In the Agile methodology https://mlsdev.com/blog/it-outsourcing-companies, a software development team structure is created for each phase of the product. This team structure reflects the functional roles of each team member, and helps the team create a high-quality product. The SDLC typically ends with a ready-to-use product, but some teams continue to develop the product long after its release. The team members study feedback from real users and make changes to the design or functionality.
