Re: 1Sep19 - C11 H-Alpha

Very nice Alfred. That kind of resolution is beyond the equipment I have now. I was curious just how much you could see visually. Cameras and processing usually reveal more than the eye alone can. Dear James, I have not done visual observation. I will share my visual experience when the haze goes a...

Re: 1Sep19 - C11 H-Alpha

Re: 1Sep19 - C11 H-Alpha

Thanks Alexandra. Unfortunately the seeing condition has deteriorated with the haze from the plantation fires in Indonesia. Hopefully the fires will be under control soon.

Excellent captures, Phil.

We have 110 psi haze over here. Hoping imaging can resume when the plantation fires in Indonesia are under control.
