A Blank Saturday Sun - 17th february

Post by marktownley » Sat Feb 17, 2018 3:38 pm

I took a break from starting to decorate our living room today as there was a few transient patches of blue. Old yellow face was quiet, with only a few wispy proms and hints of small filaments. Taken with the double stack Lunt 50 and PGR Chameleon 3 camera.

Back to decorating then off for a hard earned beer...

A very quiet sun there, Mark.

Nice images, Mark.

Thanks for sharing them with us. Too bad you were not able to take such pictures where the 2699 shines for 10 days.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate your kind words. I wish it was better weather so I could have imaged more of the active region Valery; fingers crossed the weather forecast improves as the new week passes.

Thanks Alexandra, I'm bored waiting for paint to dry, so decided to process the single stack data I took on the same day:
