Sun in Hydrogen Alpha- May 23rd

Post by Carbon60 » Wed May 23, 2018 9:19 pm

Evening sessions can be so hit and miss and I was working to a tight schedule which meant things were done in a bit of a rush. Both images were captured on using my DS150/Lunt35 mod with a 2.5X Powermate and acA1920-155um camera.

Processing:
AS!3, Imppg, PixInsight

First up, AR2710 with some nice curving plasma streamers.

And some proms. Note the tuning fades out a bit towards the right hand side :( I should have spotted this and corrected for it at the time..... oh hum.

Some beautiful smooth imaging Stu :bow I was looking at the evening Sun and wishing I was imaging.

Been so busy at work again as I have been drowning in data again, it really puts me off coming home and drowning in more imaging data ;)

Many thanks, everyone. Hopefully there will be more opportunities to image over this holiday weekend here in the UK.

Derek, glad you enjoyed the article on magnetometry. Things are a little quiet at the moment, as far as solar storms are concerned.
