Sol from fathers day 2015.

Post by eroel » Sun Jun 21, 2015 6:05 pm

Hello:
Well, looks like I got rid of the hotspot after cleaning and aligning optics, so I made a test image and here it is.
Was taken with a 6" f/12 AP-refractor working @ f/48 with a Baader Herschel wedge, the camera was a SKYnix 2-2 with a 0.5X reducer and a Continuum Baader filter at the nose, on a hazy and cloudy sky.
Happy fathers day and thanks for looking.
Eric.

Hi Eric,

Perfect WL image for such a modest aperture!

Congratulates!

Pedro, Oivind, Theo and Walter:
Thanks for the comments.
BTW Walter, well not just was the cleaning and aligning, I also made a flat. :-))
The 4X Powermate had its big diameter lens covered with sort of an oily smudge layer (probably mold), that scattered the light too.
This is the problem caused by not using my 6" f/12 AP refractor for almost 6 months and leaving it mounted, with bricklayers building a wall putting a concrete beam and modifying the inside of the observatory.
I don´t want to think how many times the scopes and mounts were bumped, but as for the 6" f/12, I had to realign the objective and focuser, as also its polar alignment. :-(
Best wishes to all,
Eric.

That's a fantastic result from a 6" aperture, Eric - congratulations!
