Re: HR granulation with the 300 mm Newtonian - 15 & 16 Aug

The granulation is absolutely gorgeous but I think the polar faculae image is my favourite. When you look closely it looks like there are little jets going upwards from the faculae regions, what do you think?

Re: Quark Testing

Yes, you need a good solar feature on the disc like a filament or active region to truly gauge the bests results for the test.

Saturday Solar 17th August - Celestron Omni CaK testing

Like others have said Saturday afternoon was fairly decent for solar viewing in Cheshire. There were very strong winds and lots of fluffy cumulus floating by but the bits in between were good. Afternoon solar viewing is never good for me as the Sun is directly over a neighbours roof so seeing is alw...

Re: Quark Testing

Looks like neg2 or neg3 is your setting of choice. Can't quite decide which is better but neg3 the bright areas are mostly either side of the field of view. You could do with a nice filament to help with contrast. That is a good test, you can see how heating moves the centre line across the field fr...

The Sun came out for me too in the afternoon but the wind made everything a challenge, you have much crispier shots than me.

Re: Aug 10 HA Quark 152 Processed

Jack, I used the TEC140 with a 135mm DERF. Do not use flats for your dial settings test! you need to see how the on band centre line comes across the field of view. Firecapture does flats during capture but the capture rate goes down by half. It is much easier to go to the centre of the Sun, place a...
