    I have 3 solar setups, a Lunt LS50, LS80 and a Quark Chromosphere, I do H-alpha, not white light (the silver filter). I have 2 ZWO ASI174mm cameras.
    For land photography I use Canon's. I have a 90D, 7DII, 5D classic, 6DII and 5DIV, and about 20 lenses up to 600mm

    I am so busy I don't have time to do half of my hobbies! I just think of the silver I am missing! But at the same time my main love is photography (both land and astronomy) followed by shooting.

    Here is one of my solar images

    Yep the banks are closing. I see many lost pickup banks and my fav dump banks closed. I used to churn through up to $2000 a week. Last week I did $395, multiple small half/ dime cwrs and got 0 silvers. Its pretty frustrating but back to detecting.

    Over the last 3 weeks, I was finally able to get my boxes back and get back to trading. Then yesterday afternoon at 3:30, I got an email from my bank (Community Bank, N.A.) saying that effective today, all branch lobbies are closed again, except by appointment. Back to waiting. So frustrating.

    Can't you order boxes and make an appointment to pick them up?

    Also, do people mean closed permanently or closed just until lockdown is over?

    Hard to say, at least in my state. I expect rolling intermittent or hard lockdowns coming for who knows how long. I also think there was a glut of banks in my area and of course they will consolidate w/layoffs. Several of the branches that my wife’s aunt works at were within less than a quarter mile apart.

    I haven’t been able to order boxes for the last 8 months due to the “coin shortage”. Supposedly the “shortage” is over now, and today I should bd able to pick up my first box.

    Been happening here for years. I moved here four years ago. I went to the local BofA to transfer my 25+ year account and and tole the teller and she almost started crying. That morning everyone had been given their notice. BofA was closing in my county. That only left 4 four banks. That building has been sitting empty for four years now.

    On a lighter note I am hoping they tear down the building and parking. In the late 1800's that area was our "Chinatown" complete with brothels and bars (and probably opium dens too) but the white folks in town had a town meeting and decided to run out all the Chinese and actually did it. The gold miners were jealous of all the gold these guys were getting from the claims that they had sold the Chinese after they thought they were worked out. I want to bring my XLT out of retirement and hunt that area completely.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.

    I'm noticing a number of borderline bank branches closing - M&T, Chase and B of A. TD isn't closing any and neither are some of the local banks. More are refusing to order boxes and fewer are taking halves and Ikes from customers. It may be the beginning of "digital cash."

    The McDonald's in my hometown is open. You can get your food inside or at the drive-thru but you can't eat inside. Donut shops are drive-thru or order inside then take it out. Banks are drive-thru only unless you make an appointment. Restaurants are open for indoor dining at a limited capacity. Coin shortage? What coin shortage? No problem with that here. Some of the things the governor has come out with make no sense whatsoever........

    I worry about digital cash as big brother can monitor everything you buy and sell, also it suddenly becomes easy to shut you off if you disagree with the state

    Also it would kill coin collecting, just like email and texts have killed the stamp hobby

    Is that news? From what I’ve read, roughly half the US does not use cash on a daily basis. Sales and purchases are already monitored and have been for years, as with unauthorized access to financial info/accounts. It does seem to be accelerating.

    I wish I could, but the branch manager says it isn't important enough business to let me in the lobby. So I wait.

    The branch itself isn't closed, just the lobby for foot traffic. You can make an appointment if you need to use your safety deposit box and businesses can get coin, since they aren't closed down this time, but pretty much anything else is via drive-thru, ATM, or online.

    I've noticed a bunch of big banks closing branches in my area. Wells Fargo closed two just within the last three months.

    First Bank and a small community bank that operates sort of like a credit union each closed a branch in my area as well.
