Fridays Full Disk 22nd June

Post by marktownley » Fri Jun 22, 2018 10:49 am

Got the tilt on the camera sorted this morning with todays full disk - happily with this setup it needs very little which means todays disk is sharper from limb to limb. Hoping to laser cut some gaskets in a bit and then hopefully should be able to finalise the clocking of etalons for a more even illumination across the disk.

Taken with a pair external Lunt 50mm etalons, Tecnosky 60mm f6 apo, BF15 and PGR Ch3.

A uniform disk, Mark, with much contrast. The large spotless active area to the east is also well defined.

Lovely disc!

Was this using FireCapture's version of flat calibration?

Very best,

Cheers folks! These full disks are taken around f9, I use a barlow on a very short nosepiece to give me a magnification factor of ~1.25x, this allows me to maximise nearly full frame on the PGR Ch3. I also tried the etalon setup on the Tal100R as I had another adaptor plate made up. Here the images are running about f25 and the 3.45um pixels of the CH3 are just too small and at this scale a imx174 chipped camera with larger 5.86um pixels would be much better.

I think next time with the Tal I will not use the 1.25x barlow.

Just waiting for the haze to break this morning and hopefully get some good views later on.
