Sunday fun in the Sun (22/11/20)

Yesterday was a beautiful day with a nice clear patch right over lunchtime which was good for viewing from my upstairs window. I started off with the PST and the PGR Chameleon and imaged at 1x for the CaK PST and 1.6x for the DS H-alpha PST. I was quite pleased with the resolution this time. https:/...

Re: Daystar Quark - Help in determining "on band" operation

I think -5 looks best for me but the key thing I noticed is DONT do a flat field in this kind of test as it makes the process easier. The key is to watch the on band area move across the field, it will be the area of darkest contrast. You can watch it move in and out of the field. You can see some e...

Re: How would the Lunt 100mm (vs 80mm) perform in average UK conditions?

Welcome to the forum Simon :hamster: I have a 100mm Solarscope and I must admit I can't remember any session with it where the seeing didn't support it. Yes, going to 2x Barlow or 3x is more difficult but I never have a problem doing a full disc. However I do only image or view in the morning, in th...

I really like the presentation Stuart and great full discs :bow :hamster: I wish I had some more time at the moment to make use of the sunshine gaps. We are back to the usual weather patterns now, sunny when I am at work and rain when I am at home ;)
