Re: Denoise

Hi,

My personal appreciation on many images is that sometimes we tend to use too much Wavelets and that intoduces a grainy seeing or as I call it sandy like the sand on the beach.

It sometimes happens to me too ...

Re: halpha sun from December 31

Hi Stephane,

Great image of the Sun on the last day of 2018. That lower filament did really grow big and the Prominence is huge for being in a minimum.

Here in central Mexico since 3 days only Clouds clouds and clouds

Happy New Year

Hi Rainer,
SOHO shows it as 2729. Not sure about the discrepancy. Either way, there’s a lot of details to be seen in the disk’s central area in your capture.
Regards,
Hi Christopher,

Thanks. Good to know that I have to check a few pages. Yes strange that there is a discrepancy.

Hi Christopher,

You mention AR but after checking in Spaceweather.com there is no AR mentioned ... Looks like a perturbation oly which has not reached AR denomination yet ...

As I work, I find that the sun only shines from Monday-Friday, so I guess when you retire the Sun won't shine at all ;)

Well, I will try to find a pseudo job from Monday to Sunday and fool the Sun :lol:
