Re: January 12th Session

Pedro, Phil, and Stu... Thanks for the comments, and I know the cold isn't for everyone (not for many around here either :lol: ). I have to say I don't mind the cold...it is what I expect to have here in the winter but I wouldn't mind some snow to go with the cold. Phil, Florida certainly is an impr...

Hi Marty...

These images are really sharp and the limb details show so much detail despite being such small proms. Your setup is working very nicely :bow

Hi Stuart...

Great to see the readings you captured for the storm. Lots of cloud cover so no chance to catch a glimpse of any activity had it occurred.

Mike and Stu...

Thanks fro your comments :bow

Mike, you raised an interesting point about the horizontal bands...I pretty much had to have the exposure as low as it would go to take the image. Will have to check this more closely next day its clear.

Re: pic from months ago (2018)

Good first pic and the proms are visible...too bad the activity is so low when you are trying to figure the imaging out!

Also good to hear that you have a motorized focuser being installed. Hope you get the system back soon and put it to use.

Re: January 4th Sun

Thanks Alexandra, I figured you would like the tuning set :bow

I can't explain the horizontal lines in the one CaK shot, but not the first I've seen them (thankfully only show up a limited number of times before). I will have to keep better track of the settings/conditions in the future.
