AR2733 Rounding the Limb at 150mm HA & UV-A | Jan 29th 2019

Post by MalVeauX » Tue Jan 29, 2019 5:08 pm

Heya,

I woke up to pleasantly decent seeing and clear skies this morning. I started imaging AR2733 as it was rounding the limb around 9:30am with the sun at 23 degrees approximately. I imaged both in 656.28nm & 395nm (white light, UV continuum A) to see the difference at this wonderful angle on the limb with a 150mm aperture.

I am quite impressed with the progress Marty developed last several months. And it is obvious than now his limiting factor is the resolution. And I hope that in a near future even his new 8" aperture will start to limit him. With Florida seeing he, as I am sure, can rise the bar on a new height in amateur imaging of our sun.

Go ahead, Marty!

Congrats on the SPoD Marty and well done with all the work you've done to get this double stack setup running.
