AR12770 at last

Hi all Finally a reasonable image, had a lot of cloud and haze here at the best times to image. So have just been doing visual, anyway yesterday was just thick haze but it was boiling away, very unsteady. I decided to have a go and got this image from a 1000 frame capture using 250 frames in fire ca...

Superb images Jochen.
They show the latest thinking of another reason why life exists on our earth, the fact that our sun is so unusually stable.

Re: Nice arching prom

Thanks everyone It's just nice to see some action. We have been clouded out, rained on, or the sun has just been blank when there has been a break for the past few weeks. I only captured 500 frames for this image and ASi3 said only 20 percent were above the 50 percent line but scanning through the i...

Nice arching prom

Hi All
I just got home and caught this nice big prom.
I only got one shot before some thin cloud rolled over, when that had gone the sun was behind next doors house.
It was a short lived prom you can catch it on the SDO dashboard.
Nice to see some activity.

Cheers Rod

Hi Terry Just wondering what tilter you actually tried on the cameras. On my opticstar camera the circuit board with the chip on it is mounted by four screws in the corners sitting on spacers. What I did was remove two spacers on opposite corners then used those two screws to tilt the board and chip...

Re: Sunspots 7/6/20 12765

That full disk is very nice.
It takes me back to my drawing days.
I must get back into it it's so much more relaxing than imaging.
Do you have any detail on how you make you drawing and what equipment you use, not just telescopes and bits but drawing materials as well.

Hi Again I have gone through all my files now and processed them. I think I like this one the best made from a short capture of only 100 frames and a stack of 25 of them even though cloud passing through the capture. I just took the video to check my focusing. It is a little grainy but I like the fa...

Thanks all for you comments. Working from home is useful at the moment, if I can get on the sun with my finder (I have a WL phtoto filter on it, much brighter so I can see through the clouds) I just leave the scope traking and quark and camera on then spend most of my time next door in the conservat...

I wish I could have got more breaks in the clouds so I could have got the filaments progress and demise.

Re: My attempt at AR2765

The last two are very nice
Sometimes thin hazy clouds give you very steady seeing, well known for planetary work, I would also imagine for solar less heating of the earth so even better seeing.

Re: Max recommended duration of video capture to freeze small scale details?

Hi all I just thought these two images may be relevant. Both taken today eight minutes apart see how dramatically the two have changed especially the filament and the little dark area shaped like a horse near the spot. Both images were taken in about three seconds. Sorry second image is not as sharp...
