Re: September 26, 12773 H-a closeup

Excellent image, Leo.

It has even more potential. I was able to add even more sharpness and more delicate details become visible.

Re: Sunday morning fun in CaK with the C11

All were taken with a C11 / ARIES ERF / 2.5x powermate + Skybender / ASI174 / Lunt CaK module. The C11 was stopped down to 18cm (7") best results and I also tried at 23.5cm (9.75") but the images were not as good. All diameters are in Flickr in the description box. I feel that this is about the bes...

Re: Thank You, SolarChat

Hi Alfred, Looking at your observation place, I would suggest that the telescope location must be maximally farther west related to the point where the sun stay after about 30-40min. after it rised over the circular roof. The farther west, the better. This will minimize the turbulence caused by the ...

Re: L'observatoire du Soleil. High Resolution Solar Observer

Equipment solutions depends of:

1. Desired results
2. Budget for solar equipment
3. Time availability for solar observing
4. Observing conditions
5. Dedication to solar observing/imaging and perseverance

Re: Lunt 40mm Dedicated Hydrogen-Alpha Solar Telescope

I am not in the market for buying one but if I spend US $ 500.00 for 40 mm I would add US 200.00 on it and get a Lunt 50 mm which has 56% more aperture then 40 mm ;) I will take a 40mm telescope with a front mounted full aperture H-a etalon any day vs 50mm telescope with tiny 20mm internal PT etalo...

Hi Valery,

I don't have the transmission curve of the filters.

I am going to get more images with them, the Chroma filters and trying different configuration of Lunt B1200 CAK module with PST CAK, not to mention Quark CAK :)

WoW Valery. That is really good for the seeing to not be that good. What type of telescope is the 12"?
Re-read my post. You can see that this is a Meade 12" F/10 ACF.
