The Sun - 15th June 2020

More sunshine this morning and still lots to see. Messed up my Ca-K full disk mosaic today, kicking myself for such a school-boy error now :( Still, lots to show for the session. I may have missed the Ca-K FD but still got a white light disk with the Bresser. 20200615_WL_AR102xs_FD.jpg Back with the...

The Sun - 14th June 2020

Early session today as the sky was cloudless when I got up. Lots to do / see with the AR still visible in both WL and Ca-K as well as some faint proms. Start off with the Ca-K full disk. the usual 6 panes to cature, stitched in MS ICE. 20200614_Ca-K_6PaneFD_Invert_Colour.jpg Then the proms. Tricky t...

Re: Solar software.

Never used Avistack so can't comment on how effective it is. I use software roughly in the following order:-
Firecapture
AutoStakkert3
ImPPG
GIMP
For mosaics I use Microsoft ICE or AutoStitch and Tilting Sun for my orientation grid.

The Sun - 13th June 2020

Forecast was for clear skies from the off today but that didn't work out. By the time the skies cleared the seeing was rather poor and the wind had picked up. Almost switched to the Bresser as the Evostar was struggling in the wind but decided to persevere. The usual 6 pane Ca-K FD 20200613_Ca-K_6Pa...

Nice report James. Glad you got a look. Lots of cloud here today too, so I ended up doing visual only in white light much like yourself.

Slim pickings between the clouds today. Just a few minutes clear spell this morning allowed me to grab a white light close up of AR12765 and a wider view in Ca-K (clouds came in before I could get setup for a close up at 2500mm). 20200607_Ca-K_AR12765.png 20200607_Ca-K_AR12765_Colour.png 20200607_WL...

The Sun - 5th June 2020

Somewhat dynamic weather here today so it's a case of grab-it-while-you-can and run for shelter before the rain gets here :lol: Managed a quick white light visual session and then stuck the Bresser on the CG-4 to try and catch an image. Patience paid off and I managed 2 x 1000 frame captures, one in...

Re: Sol from the 2nd of June 2020.

Awesome images Eric. Apologies you have undoubtedly been asked this many times, what is the "Ca-K PST Mod" you refer to in your Ca-K image names?
