Re: Experimenting calcium imaging with small refractors

That is really interesting. I get exactly the same as your first scope with the TEC140, it seems pretty hopeless at 140mm, marginally better at 120mm and OKish at 100mm but nothing like what you get with your last scope.

Re: Surface contrast in CaK for various filter bandpasses.

Very very interesting, this should be put in the library when the discussion is finished. I have also seen these dark channels in CaK and never really thought about them till now, I wonder what they are? we will have to call them ferrets :lol:

Some lovely shots with the PST, nice to see CaK proms! I could never manage that with mine as it is so dark getting just the surface ;)

These are lovely shots Lou, it is always good to have a low res set up as well :bow

Is the strange halo effect on the prom shot to do with the haze?

Re: Ca-H full disc of Sept. 13th

I agree, I don't use IMPGG for CaK either. I have never really settled on what I like but AstraImage is what I usually turn to. I find IMPGG seems to create tiny dots which I am not sure is correct. I try to study the video as close as I can, then try and replicate what you see in processing, the ey...

Re: Closure of National Solar Observatory remains shrouded in secrecy

I think that is a hoax story according to Matt Penn and certainly from watching the Sun I don't think there will be any major solar flare do you :) I think it is either a security issue or something else. https://eu.alamogordonews.com/story/news/local/2018/09/07/sunspot-observatory-south-cloudcroft-...
