Ha Filaprom June 11th

Post by Carbon60 » Mon Jun 11, 2018 6:52 pm

Just time for a 'quick' solar image this evening after work. I say 'quick' because by the time I've lugged all of my gear around the house to my back garden it feels like much longer than the few minutes that it actually takes, going back and forth, taking a few pieces at a time. Anyhow, moments after getting set up on target and everything aligned and tuned the seeing conditions went to pot; almost literally it was like looking at the bottom of a swimming pool after only a few moments of relative calm. Thankfully I'd just managed to capture this image of a nice filaprom before the scope became useless under the conditions.

150mm/DS Lunt 35 with a 2.5x Powermate and acA1920-155um camera. I'm sure I should have re-orientated the image, but hey.
4000 images stacked using AS!3 and deconvoluted using Imppg. Further processing in PixInsight.

and an inverted version....

The limb gives away the fact that the tuning was a little bit off.

Thanks for looking.

That is a lovely prominence, Stu. I prefer the inverted version but they are both very nice. Lucky you had time to image on a work day.....

:) sounds like the Sun just started passing over the neighbours barbecue :lol:
Fantastic image, you can see how the plasma is like a thin veil and see through, what a delicate structure although it is probably the size of Earth.

Hi, Stu

I always prefer a "right side up" orientation to prom images, just the way I look at life. The floating impression is enhanced this way.

Stu:
Beautiful Filaprom image in both versions.
I also prefer the "right side up" orientation in prominence images.
Best regards,
Eric.
