Re: Denoise

Cool. Thanks for the links, Alexandra.

Anything to help improve image quality is always welcome. We just need this to be available free and Windows compatible :)

Re: I keep trying

Hi Don,

As Alexandra says, use ImPPG for sharpening. AS!3 works well for image stacking. Maybe try the 80mm scope at lower magnification to capture full disks, or segments thereof.

Good images, Peter. Do the horizontal lines come from the edges of the slit?

Re: 15 July AR in CaK

Very nice close view, Peter. That Omega filter appears to work well with the Lunt module.

Solar granulation and Ha 15th July

I rolled out the 250mm RCT this morning although the conditions were not good wrt seeing and the SER video files were quite a mess. Even with 2x2 binning, shortening the exposure time to 0.8 ms to maximise the chances of freezing the turbulence, I struggled to capture anything really 'solid' for Imp...

14th July Ha and CaK sun

Just back from a short vacation in sunny Greece (regrettably without scope- it was painful to see such beautiful clear blue skies without having any imaging equipment). Thankfully the sun is also shining in clear skies over much of the UK this weekend, including my own little patch here in Lancashir...

Many thanks, everyone.

Valery, I just concentrated on granulation shots this session, trialling various combinations of filters, barlows and settings to get the best I could.

Great chromosphere images, Stu, very 3D. I am partial to the mono versions, as I think they show more drama and texture.

I agree, Franco. I think I could have processed the colour ones a bit better to preserve some of the detail.

A few from this morning in red light using the 250mm RCT fitted with a full size Aries DERF. The seeing conditions were not great and the SER sequences looked pretty bad until AS!3 and Imppg did their thing.
