Re: Small Post Flare Loops, 1 January

Stunning work Jim! I saw some lovely loops on GONG this morning.
Can I ask what settings you use for your prominence captures as you have such beautiful black background? I had a terrible white haze on Sunday and yet the sky looked crystal clear.

Re: Full disc 15th Jan with Solarscope

Thanks everyone :) I was so excited to get it out of the box again. I have a lot of work to do to get all the images right though.

CU, it is a 100mm aperture and so it makes an f9.

Re: Sundays Sun - Ha & CaK - 15th January

Both are excellent Mark! try the WL anyway, you may be surprised, surely it can't be that bad? I too had early morning clouds which gave me a worry but then it went lovely and clear, I hope it will stay that way for tomorrow.

Re: Full disc 15th Jan with Solarscope

I haven't really done anything else to it, I didn't even drop the curve down like Chris said either. Possibly I may have over sharpened. I ...

Finally today I worked out that I had a 45 minute gap where the sun just grazed above the small bush before going into the neighbours tree and I got a full disc with the Solarscope Yippee!!! I am not optimal with taking the images yet, it's funny as I can't really tune it, it seems to be either not ...
