Re: 17th October WL granulation

Hi Robert...

Both images look great considering the low elevation of the sun :bow

The 3x is very sharp, but the 5x still looks very good. A 4x might have delivered a bit more resolution but still excellent results.

Re: A very special prom on Oct 10

Back to the Ha filter specs...

TheSkyBurner...good to know it has promise. I wasn't sure if the IR leak as beyond the 1,000nm and didn't show up on standard plots.

Re: A very special prom on Oct 10
