Re: ISS Transit 5th June

Very Nice Mark

Re: Full disk in Ha light, June 6, 2020

Nice full disk, they are getting better
the uneven illumination is very hard to get rid of, I suffer the same, I think most of us do.

Re: AR2765 Imaged on 06/06/2020

Awsom Martin except that dam dog. One reason I am weary of solar film, to easy to damage. I have made several dedicated white light scopes in the past by sandwiching solar film between the two elements of a achromat. Nice and safe and the film lasts longer. Love the detail in the Ha and that filamen...

AR2765 and spot

Hi Something for those under the bad weather. This seems like the best I will get today. I had 25min of clear sky between pouring rain and got one shot, one shot more than I expected till next week. Seeing is also awful between the clouds, jumping about all over the place making it very difficult to...

Re: Huge Prom today

It looks like it would have been a nice interesting day, probably going to have some good ARs as well now it's cloudy for a week or moore in the UK.
Thank goodness we have others to show us what's going on.

Sadly for us in the UK we are covered in cloud an rain at the moment and future forecast does not look good just as another active region is approaching.
Anyway I look forward to some nice images.

Re: May 30 2020 Observations

Nice one James well deserved SPOD Can't wait to see what you do with a monochrome camera, you have some nice setups so anything is possible. A for effort don't put yourself down I don't think most of us could do that with a DSLR, I for one would give up in frustration. I love the full disk B&W as we...

Re: Lunt 60mm SS vs DS

Dam it Dan, I WAS happy with my setup :(

That is very clear comparison.
It is interesting how it moves the dark area from one side of the sun to the other, I bet you can play about with tuning for hours, what fun you will have :mrgreen:
