Quark Dial Test. On band?

Post by Brett » Fri May 20, 2016 4:52 pm

I spent some time this afternoon to see if I can get the correct dial setting for my Quark. I took 6 images, but unfortunately the the last two at dial -1 and +4 had some rotation difficulty as I had to flip the scope. But I think on band is one of these 4. My guess for now is the second picture in top row. This was the +1 setting.

Your opinions?

Btw, everything was processed exactly the same. Added to one collage from start and then sharpened with some contrast for detail.

I think number 1 as well. The plage seems brightest in this one, but then again picture number 2 looks great as well.
