2021-03-31 - Triband AR's + polar faculae

Post by JochenM »

Quite exquisite seeing here today (compared to how it normally is). So time to use some bigger toys of course.

The two AR's are still going strong, so those were the obvious first target. Since I was quite surprised at how clear the WL views were today, I decided to have a look at capturing the faculae near both poles. Came out fairly well I think.

Setup:

HA: 150 achromat (stopped down to 120mm), Quark Chromosphere, Baader 35nm H-Alpha, IMX174
CaK: 150 achromat @ 120mm f/15, Lunt CaK b1800, Baader Blue CCD, IMX291
WL: 150 achromat @ 120mm f/15, Baader Herschel Wedge, Baader Solar Continuum, IMX291

Thanks for looking!

Indeed you have certainly very-well captured the faint AR's Jochen.

The weather to thee west of you here in S.E.England hazed to cloud-out by midday, so you did well to capture yours so well.

Thanks for sharing
Terry

Thanks James/Terry

Making use of the conditions while they last (which is never long here) 🙂

Thanks Stu/Alexandra.

Definitely my best session of the year so far (not like that's saying much, but still). Fingers crossed for more of this.

A very good session Jochen. Both faculae and close ups came out well.
