Yay! Finally something to image!

Post by FlankerOneTwo » Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:59 pm

Winds died down and the haze lightened up a little, so I had a go with the Quark and an APM HerschelPrizm in the WO FLT132. The APM seems to work quite well in this scope.
Clear skies all!

Crop on the AR - not sure I like the colorization on white light images. Thoughts?

Thanks for the comments! The extra aperture and focal length definitely make a difference! The Quark also works pretty decently, didn't have to do much other than tweak the contrast and a light touch of sharpening.

Great job!
I'm envious. I'm stuck with the haze. Looking through the eyepiece makes me think that my optics are filthy. I can't even see any prominences. It's tough even to tune the etalon, but at least I got something of a look today.
Nice to see what it looks like with better seeing
