One year and 55 AR's ago

Post by ffellah » Sat Sep 01, 2018 4:31 pm

Hello all: here the weather is cloudy with no sign of improving. I looked back and found these two images of AR2665 one year ago. The disk was imaged with a Canon 50x zoom point and shoot camera: the close-up was my first image with the HaT scope and a PST etalon.

Clear skies to all,

Franco

Hi Franco, beautiful shots!

I remember that group, I used it to test my solar newtonian in K line imaging, really spectacular.

Thank you, Paul, for setting the count straight. I guess I had an extra beer before posting... and thank you Raf for your nice comments.

Maybe not, when counting the individual spots in the AR, count goes up fast.
Anywhay, hope the beer was as good as the image.

An excellent reminder of what has been and appetiser for what's to come.

Thanks for that, Franco.

Yes, those were the days! Thanks for remind about them.

BTW I now waiting even for a pore-like spot to take a CaK picture of it with a large scope. CaK allows higher resolution and "makes" a spot bigger in a 1,7x than in H-a.
