Re: August 15th - Ha

Hi all... Here are a couple of images taken the evening before the solar images. Wheat harvest is 3-4 weeks behind normal here, but the dry weather is allowing harvest to proceed. I snapped this pic of my neighbor combining wheat just before sunset, a few solar photons went into producing this crop ...

Re: August 15th - Ha

Derek and Stuart... Thanks for your posts about the images. I was happy to get the finer details in the prom, but would have liked a bit more resolution. Alexandra has told me about the constant rain in her part of the UK, hopefully it clears off for you all. On a positive note here, I awoke to rain...

August 15th - Ha

Hi all... A short session yesterday (Aug 15th) which only gave time to collect a few FD images with the LS80T. The first shot is a composite of separate disk and limb frames (limb inverted), showing the rather bland disk, but a nice prom on the NW limb: LS80T_SSHa-2.jpg The second image was obtained...

August 11th Sun - a few angles

Hi all... I was hoping for a more productive session today, but between clouds and computer shut down after a couple of full disk images and an attempt at some higher res shots. Visually, the disk was pretty much blank in the LS80T/DSII/B1200 scope. I made separate disk and limb exposures to create ...

Re: My first sun photo

Welcome Hugo... You have a good first post with the FD image!!! Start off slow...get the exposures and camera settings sorted out and then work your way up to barlows. I'm not sure what you have for a mount, but the more you push the camera/scope you will need to have a mount that can keep it all st...

Hi Bart...

The DS assembly looks good, and I'll be keeping an eye out for images as you refine it!!! The DS image shows lots of potential, and the lunar pic is tack sharp. Well done :bow

Hi everyone... Finally making some progress on 4 days of imaging...back to work tomorrow so I hope to get these cleaned up as soon as I can. The first views on Thursday through the LS80T (single stack mode) did not show a lot of details, so I took time to experiment with other OTA's and filter optio...

Hi Jack...

Too bad these was so little detail to see the Quark in action, but I would think that a flat would even the FOV up very nicely.

Good set of images despite the conditions. The long focal lengths need a lot of patience to get usable results (at least in this part of the world) ;)

Great news that you have recovered your view from the tree :o

The entire set of images are very sharp, and allowing the auto capture to run paid off. Excellent work :bow
