CaK Full Disk - 1st May

Post by marktownley » Tue May 01, 2018 9:04 am

Sun is still low first thing, but assuming there are no clouds I can get an image in before 7am when I go to work. Seeing was boiling away like crazy and I was seriously surprised I got a usable image out, the magic of AS3! CaK full disk with the 40mm f10, somewhere around 500mm with the homebrew CaK filter and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
