Re: April 29th Session

Krakatoa...with regards to the CaK wedge it is based on the CaK unit that Lunt sells to use with the LS150. Their standard CaK filters are designed to work up to 100mm apertur...

Re: May 27th Ha Session

Thanks Mark...

I pretty much had to tweak each image for brightness/contrast but they came out pretty well after I was done. I think the 3x are some of the beat I've pulled off of the modded scope in the past year or so...good seeing is not usually on my side :o

May 27th Ha Session

Good day everyone... Another crazy long week here at work, but finally managed to finish processing my session form last Sunday (May 27th). I was glad to have a day home with clear skies from sunrise to sunset, and above average seeing kept me glued to the solar scopes most of the morning. It was al...

Re: April 29th Session

Thanks Derek... Hope the weather cooperates for your cousin and lets him get some crop in and the pastures green up and can cut back having to feed the livestock. It is actually trending to be on the dry side here...winter and spring was all mixed...warm then cold, snow, then bare ground. Our start ...

April 29th Session

Hi all... A light rain this afternoon has provided an early evening home, and a chance to catch up on image backlogs. These were taken on the morning of April 29th with above average seeing...I was hoping for a good session. The fist images were full disk Ha taken through the LS80T/B1200Ha solar sco...

The month of May

Good day everyone... I have been scrambling to follow the posts here the past 3 or 4 weeks, with lots of great posts and images presented. The land finally dried enough here to put the spring crop rush into full gear and with 80-90 hrs over 6 days a week put into work I have not had time to post. Ir...

Your FD's are always impressive Pedro...these are excellent :bow

Too bad the one AR is rotating off the limb, though there were a few small areas today that may develop in to something more.

Re: H-alpha with 250 mm RCT

Hi Stuart... The image looks good under the conditions you describe. These large scopes need above average conditions by the looks of it. A year on and I'm still not overly happy with my 25cm SCT project but I hope to get more time to work on it this spring. Keep us posted on your efforts and result...

Re: Thermal Acclimation of My Lunt50

Hi all...

I missed explaining the conditions that the LS80T is used in at my observatory...winter has been used in as cold as -26C and as warm as 35C in summer...nice comfortable range :lol:

Re: Thermal Acclimation of My Lunt50

Hi Mark... I leave my LS80T and the DSII modded refractor out in the observatory all year round and they are usually close to ambient air temp any time I go out to observe/image. I have never had an issue as you described...I may have to adjust the pressure a bit more than simple tuning if the tempe...
