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...

Re: June 8 2020 Observations

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.

The Sun - 7th June 2020

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...

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?

Re: The Sun - 2nd June 2020

Thanks all for your kind comments. Fine images, with many proms details. Shouldn't they be flipped vertically ? He just has the North pole at the bottom and the tilting Sun graph is therefore correct. Maybe he lives down under ? :lol: Yes, it does confuse a bit. Yes, I need to remember to flip the d...

The Sun - 2nd June 2020

Woke to cloud this morning :( Fortunately it was that thin cirrus stuff that I could work either around / through. Lots going on still, although the spots / pores seem to have vanished there's still lots of prominence activity. Start off with the Ca-K FD's. Couldn't get it to stitch initially but a ...

The Sun in Ca-K - 1st June 2020

New month started in the right way - sunny skies and lots of solar imaging :D Still lots to see both in white light and Ca-K. Seeing was generally poorer than yesterday but with some steady moments.
