Very nice set Eric. Great job pulling out the details in those proms.

That’s a fine lunar image Valery. Excellent detail on a gorgeous landscape.

Re: Whirling Prom Animation 20181007

20181007-f200-Extra-Sharp-CroppedBW.gif Based on lots of great feedback here I've learned some new techniques and reprocessed this animation. I must say, the event takes on a bit of a different character. Rather than whirling proms, one sees quite clearly the massive double magnetic pulse unleashed...

I echo Robert's comments on the value of exploring off-band. Very interesting animation Apollo.

Re: Whirling Prom Animation 20181007

Hi Skyburner, Yes! That’s amazing. I absolutely had a vision of whirling dervishes when I first saw the 45 frames in sequence and your rendition nails it. Thank so much! I used FireCapture, Autostakkert, IMPPG (sharpening), Photoshop (align and animate). I’m sure with time one develops patience but ...

Whirling Prom Animation 20181007

This is my first attempt at a Halpha animation. Data capture was Sunday (10/7) between 1:17 and 2:02PM EDT. I did 10 seconds every minute for 45 minutes and ended up with 23 usable frames as seeing was pretty lousy. Here's the gear list for this capture: Zeiss APQ130/Solar Spectrum Mod T-Scanner 0.6...

Re: FireCapture Troubles

Thought I’d post a final chapter on this issue in case someone else has a similar experience. It is unclear what caused the initial problem for which I self-prescribed software and firmware updates across the board. However, the updates themselves caused additional issues. I’m happy to report that t...

FireCapture Troubles

Finally made it outside for some imaging. It's been literally several months. And what do you know....the camera doesn't work with FireCapture. I end up doing a firmware update on the camera, a FlyCap update and a FireCapture update...heck I even updated my iPhone and iPad just to get right with the...

Re: Sunday Sun 24th June

Excellent images Stu. Watching this prominence region during the cloud breaks today. It’s a dynamic one for sure.
