Sun and moon from July3

Post by gabrieli » Wed Jul 04, 2018 4:06 pm

The day started at 5 a.m. with the moon approaching last quarter. Then, I did some solar imaging in the afternoon.
Both images following were done with a Lunt 152 and Blackfly S camera.

The lunar inages were taken with an AR152 at 2000mm and Blackfly S
The northern lunar region. If you look carefully, you can see 3 or 4 specks inside Plato in the shape of a triangle. These are small craters.

Hi!
I'm happy to see that the protuberances are still active.
Why didn't you straight continue imaging the sun in the morning?
The seeing is expected to be better on the morning.
At my last session, I really detected poor imaging conditions at 07:00 to 08:00, when the sun was too low,
better from 08:30,
then from 08:30 to 09:00 reasonably good.
After 09:00, the conditions start to deteriorate because of the turbulence rising.

I would image earlier in the morning but my and my neighbours' houses are in the way. The earliest time athat the sun is accessible is about 10:30 am and then its directly over hot roofs.
