Re: ladies and gentleman the ultimate animation of March 24

Excellent. Really nicely done, although isn’t the animation running backwards? The AR seems to be sucking in those streamers.

Re: Calcium II K Sunday

I’d be happy to help out testing the Lunt module, Alexandra. We can coordinate when the skies look promising over a weekend.

Re: Calcium II K Sunday

Hi Alexandra,

Probably the jet stream throwing things out. With that aperture it’s so reliant on superb seeing.
Sorry to hear about your various hardware and computer issues. You’ve been having a rough time with these things lately :roll:

Re: Sunday Sun March 24th '19

Many thanks everyone.

I’m finally happy with my CaK setup using the Lunt B600, Baader K-line and Omega stack.
The biggest issue I have right now is getting good contrast though my Lunt60 for Ha FDs.

Cheers

Sunday Sun March 24th '19

A frustrating morning with only relatively short gaps between the gathering cumulus clouds, but the air was clear and the seeing conditions were pretty good. I spent more time waiting than capturing images, but managed a few with my various scopes and cameras. AR2736 is getting really close to the l...

Nice capture, Alfred.

Just cloud and rain, so no chance of seeing anything on the Sun from here.

Reflected Sunlight- Moon 17th March '19

After a day of mostly clouds, surprisingly the evening turned out pretty clear, providing a nice opportunity to grab some time imaging the moon.

Re: Sunday Sun 17th March '19

Many thanks Mark/Marty/Valery. Valery, I totally understand and agree. These were imaged just above my neighbours roof tops, between a tree and a lamp post with the threat of rain at any moment. Not ideal, so I figured I'd use the faster frame rate of the IMX174 chip rather than the IMX250 with smal...
