Re: AR2816 CME MOVIE of 22-4-2021

Exciting is a good definition Franco.
With a bit of luck (and some lost sleep), our "Fed" in Toronto might get to see the results of an Aurora from this CME and I've asked to keep his camera handy, so we might see those results...

Cheers

Re: Lyrids April 2021

Well Rainer, I have captured what I initially believe to a meteorite and a possible meteor, but as am currently recording at nearly 00:01z, it will be a while before that set of avi's can be further investigated. I'm now recording sets of 1000-images spaced at 4 frames per second and the Moon is nea...

Re: 22-4-2021 AR2816 -SOLAR-FLARE & CME THIS MORNING

Indeed Fed, I'm fairly certain you should see the N.Aurora by the night of the 25th, but if you can, have a look in the early hours of the morning of the 24th as well, as the times are not always too-accurate. Then anytime's of the 25th night should give you a good opportunity - if you don't mind lo...

Re: April 22 2021 Observations

Thank you James. you have pointed-out that I believe I got my AR numbers in the wrong order in my images published today here, as of course AR2817 appeared and was numbered before the arrival of 2818's number... Confuscious Say !! Your report is very much as my images today have shown, so well done ...

Re: Lyrids April 2021

Thank you Rainer for the interesting data and my SX-Oculus All-Sky-Camera is set-up ready, so as its' looking clear, I might spend the dark-time in the observatory see what it can capture and let you have some captures to peruse.

22-4-2021 AR2818,2817,2816 in three lights

Today is my first fully-operational observatory captures today and I have started using some of the Barlows - during a very-clear skies day.

A little turbulence as also quite breezy-winds, but hey can't have everything all the time...

Enjoy..

Thanks for the feedback Alexandra. I don't have the original download files to play with, but will be looking more closely at your suggestion when I process and post today's capture in three-lights.

A HIT FROM THE PAST !!!

A five year-old CAK image has just surfaced - whilst doing some computer cleaning-up and hopefully I can get back to this standard of imaging soon and also now starting to play with telephoto's today too.

Images of today will appear soon.

Comments appreciated ?
Thanks for looking
