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

Hi everyone... A couple of questions to pose here as the discussion evolves. First, in the spring of 2017 when I got the Airylab telecentric I met Frédéric at NEAF and he suggested adding a Ha filter in image train. Their telecentric has a 1.25" filter mount before the amplifier optics and can be ti...

More October 10th Proms

Hi everyone... I too was out for a short session over lunch today and captured a few full disk and the main prom on the western limb that showed a lot of details. The images below are disk/limb composites taken with the LS75 etalon on my Williams Optic 72mm, f6 APO and B1200 blocker. The first is pr...

Re: A very special prom on Oct 10

Hi Lou...

The proms came out well with all setups. I think the C9.25 did a great job with the chromospheric details as well.

Re: Lunt calcium filter imaging thread

It is too bad that some places on earth suffer from the pollution as shown in the pic posted for the 'televised sunrise'. I suspect that unless there is major change in thinking these places will continue to degrade. I only hope that clearer minds will continue to push efforts to preserve the enviro...

Re: Today's SUN (20181004) with GREAT seeing

Hi Pedro...

These FD's are as sharp as the previous day, but the hi-res granulation is excellent. I like how we can see short instances of better seeing...great to have the image processing capabilities of today.
