Re: Symphony Of Our Star - Real Images Of Sun - 4K

Yes. I read that it is limited by it's expendables. Fuel. I read it could run out this year. I hope they have been really thrifty with it. I see no real replacement for SDO in the future.

Awesome Rainer. Again I consult your images as well as GONG Big Bear against my notes for today's observations which I am preparing to post.

Re: Sol from the 7th of July 2020.

Beautiful work Eric. The spicule motting and proms show so much detail. I also like the soft glow above the limb.

That never gets old/boring to look at.
Nope! I agree. But that is what I find so fascinating about the Sun. It's never the same twice. It changes more than any other astronomical body I have ever observed.

Re: Symphony Of Our Star - Real Images Of Sun - 4K

I use SDO data as if it were my own. I am glad NASA makes it publicly available in almost real-time. It along with the NSO GONG network is very valuable to me as a solar observer. What would we do without these missions/programs? We would certainly rely more on each other I think. I do find yours, E...

Re: July 5 2020 Observations

The TV85 is really nice. And those TV Delos eyepieces impressed me with a sharp wide field and ample eye relief, even in the 6mm FL. He also has a Takahashi FS102 that I was hoping to use today with the wedge but I got clouded out.

Re: Back after a long lay off.

The Lunt 100 SS should do very well. My Coronado 90 ( 102 in SS ) does excellent on limb/prominence detail. Just ask Mark Townley. He has one too! The Coronado 90 is most definitely 90mm clear aperture in single stack mode, i've just got a ruler out and measured it! The 90 is great though, I agree....

Re: July 5 2020 Observations

Alfred, I could never be that good starting up. The credit there goes to Rainer. I used GONG Big Bear as a guide but found light places on the disc not shown or poorly shown. I jotted down the locations hoping someone would post images showing a clearer view to verify or disprove what I saw. Rainer ...
