Re: 19 Oct 2020 - Sun in 3 colours

Fantastic! that is great news on the weather front and super to see you using the smaller scope. Thanks for the excellent views :bow :hamster: Alexandra The CAK and H-Alpha images were taken with a very old PGR Scorpion camera with vertical line problems. Looks like it may be time for me to retire ...

Re: 2020/10/18 Solar Flare AR2776 &full disk

Hi Alex,

Nice catch from Beijing. There are so many fine details along the limb in the HA full disk.

Congrats on catching the flare from 10:44 to 10:55 am. It was still flaring when I imaged it at 1:33 pm in Singapore.

Hi Terry,

I also think the images taken with the ASI camera are better than those with the GPCAM. Have fun as you find that best tuning.

Hi James,

Thanks for your interesting report. I was hoping to follow up with the NE Proms today but the weather didn't cooperate.

Hope you will resolve your mount issues soon.

Re: 19 Oct 2020 - Sun in 3 colours

Thanks Franco, Terry and James for your kind comments.

The weather turned south today. However, we believe that the worst is behind us. We are looking to dry weather ahead. Flaring activities have also decreased.

Re: 19 Oct 2020 - Sun in 3 colours

When you said three colors you meant three colors. Are you using a color camera on the images? Hi Dan, Thanks for your question. All videos were captured with monochrome cameras. The images were coloured in Photoshop. I used "3 colours" - to mean the 3 wavelengths and hence the colour of images. Ma...

Today marks the first day of a better weather season. The clouds and rain are going away.

Hi Jozef,

What a lovely set of high-resolution images. They looked 3-D!!

The seeing seems to be average, or even fair and yet the images look wonderful. Did you use the SSM to trigger the video recording?

Re: Sun and Moon October 11th 2020

Hi Stu,

Those are awesome solar and lunar images!!

Over here, the weather has been consistently bad, both day and night. We have been trying every night to image Mars for the last 3 weeks, without success. Clouds and rain are the main obstacles.
