9 Mar 18 H-Alpha Sun from Singapore (11 Mar18 images added)

Post by yltansg » Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:41 pm

I have put hi-res imaging on hold as we continue to have cloudy days.

In between clouds, I did FD, X3 barlow and x5 barlow imaging with ASI174mm camera with a NR eliminator. Scope was a Borg 77 fitted with a DS Solarscope SF50 etalons.

Image

Full disk imaging show a spotless Sun.

The image with a x3 barlow:

And next stretching it further with a x5 barlow:

Hope clouds will go away soon.

Thanks Alexandra, Brian and Mark.

Though it has been very cloudy almost every day, patience paid off with some images using the SF50DS on a Borg 77 refracotr and the ARIES D-ERF on a 150mm refractor and Lunt 50Tha.

FD in H-Alpha on 11 Mar 18 using the Borg 77 + DS SF50

Just managed to get 1 chance with the hybrid. Was glad to have got the following image before clouds covered all....

Very nice images considering the conditions and a great set-up, Alfred.

Here we are waiting tonight for the THIRD Nor'easter in less than two weeks..... no solar imaging, only snow :evil:

Thanks Franco. Hope weather will turn for the better for you. Over here the skies continue to be cloudy throughout most days.
