FD H-Alpha Sun on 6 Mar from Singapore

Post by yltansg » Tue Mar 06, 2018 2:08 pm

After successful iEQ45 repair, the solar imaging jig (77mm Borg refractor with DS SF50 and ASI174 camera) is in action again.

The Moon was hanging on the other side of the sky.

A long filament about 10 times the length of earth diameter is moving across the disk

Image
A negative rendition shows the floating filament

And a coloured one for good measure.

Alfred:
Good about the repair. BTW, you got beautiful shots from a small aperture filter and from an impressive observing site. :shock:
Best regards,
Eric.

Thanks Eric. I am trying out this new site for C8 G-Band imaging in the next 2 weeks. If found to be better than my last site, I will put my C14 fitted with a full aperture D-ERF here . The D-ERF should be coming in soon . So look out for it :)

Thanks Franco, Robert, Rainer and Alexandra for your kind comments. The 77mm borg refractor with a Solarscope DS 50mm H-Alpha etalons is one of my solar workhorses for full disk imaging.

Nice views of scopes, the sun and the horizon. I reckon your elevated observing position is a great help when it comes to your hi-res imaging.

Thanks Mark and Marios.

It has been cloudy and we have lots of clouds. I have placed hi-res imaging on hold and continue with SF50 imaging.
