MAGNESIUM QUARK!

Post by TheSkyBurner » Tue May 29, 2018 11:49 pm

How did you guys miss this?

http://daystarfilters.com/Quark/MgIQuark.shtml

"This latest and likely the last wavelength offered for Quark reveals a whole new area of highly magnetized high energy in the bright 5172.8Å wavelength. The eye is most sensitive at this wavelength so the image is significantly brighter than calcium. Views show both plage and dark mottling of chromospheric network. "


The last quark...

I already saw images taken with this Quark. Sort of images like with sodium Quark, like images I routinely obtain with unheated H-a Chromosphere Quark.

H-a, CaK, CaH and Ca I (8542,1A) all are much more interesting lines.

there are a few images on the internet by Gary Palmer:

as a comparision, here is a sodium image from Gary Palmer:

So, now options become available but I agree with Valery that there may be other lines of interest, like TiO ad Ca I. The nice thing about Na and Mg is, however, that SCTs are well corrected at that wavelength other than at Ca (and Halpha).

Best, Laura
