Re: Trying again

Robert,

Could you please elaborate on your community a bit? There are one or two similar spots in Arizona my wife and I have discussed a bit regarding retirement. I don't know if I could manage the FL humidity!

Re: May 31 2015 What 150mm is capable of. EXCELLENT seeing.

Fantastic shots with great resolution. I agree even a "quiet" sun is beautiful at high-res. Maybe I need a Lunt 152 for solar min!

Wow - those are beautiful shots and animations. I was thinking about a time lapse on those proms yesterday but was rudely interrupted by a thunderstorm (got the scope inside just as the first drops were falling!)

Pedro,

Wow - that's really cool! That may be slightly beyond the C11 but I'll give it a try on some very dark, still night. Have you imaged Einstein's Cross?

Re: Einstein RULES!!!!! (gravitational lensing)

Cool fish! It was Arthur Eddington who observed gravitational lensing around our sun in the 1919 total solar eclipse. Thanks - yes - I should have been more precise - the quasar was the first known example of multiple images caused by lensing. Eddington's work was a pretty good accomplishment in 19...

Einstein RULES!!!!! (gravitational lensing)

OK, these aren't solar shots but I thought they might be of interest. They were taken with a Celestron 11" Edge HD and SBIG STT8300. Seeing was maybe 2/5 with bright moonlight. The first image shows (to the right) two galaxies in Ursa Major but the object of real interest is marked on the left, and ...

Re: Filamentous Sunday

Nice filaments! Unfortunately clear sky and available time have been mutually exclusive here for a few weeks. Beautiful landscapes as well - I really like your "golden hour" sunrise/set photos - they do a great job of capturing the lighting.

Re: Late May 10 H-alpha

As requested here are the positives. I don't know if this is typical or just sub-par processing on my part but I can seldom get the positives to look as clean as the negatives. Maybe the positive light scheme is just less forgiving?? sc_ps_ai3_ps_Sun_112658.jpg sc_ps_ai3_ps_Sun_121340.jpg sc_ps_ai3_...

Late May 10 H-alpha - positive images added

A few more pictures with the Lunt 100/1800 and Grasshopper 674. The first is with the 5x Powermate - a reworked version of one I had posted previously. sc_ps_ai4_psb_Sun_112658.jpg The next two are with a 2.5x Powermate. Seeing had deteriorated somewhat by then. The prom showed some nice activity on...
