SunSpot AR2706, Major Proms, in High Res, HA & CA | April 25th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:15 pm

Heya,

Clear morning so I shot out to my observatory at 0830am to be ready tracking with the sun and ready to image by 09:00 when my seeing is bestish. The seeing was bouncing between 2~3 and to a zero often. It was a mishmash of fuzz, but brief moments of sharp pencil drawings showed themselves. I was able to focus quickly thanks to AR2706 being still a good prominent feature. Dialed that in and scanned the limb of the disc, and to my surprise, some rather lovely prominence groupings. The seeing was good enough for brief moments to capture some great definition in the spicules on the limb. AR2706 is still nice and active with a lovely filament joining the grouping (man that would look awesome if it were on the limb). Grabbed some data on AR2706 in CA just for comparison.

Setup:

Celestron Omni XLT 120
Baader UV/IR Cut Filter
Quark Chromosphere (HA)
Skybender (393nm Filters) + GSO ED 3x Barlow (CA)
ASI174MM
Orion Sirius
