Awesome Proms Today! Active Regions, New Spot? | HA & CAK | Sep 8th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Sat Sep 08, 2018 4:56 pm

Heya,

Woke up to some fair conditions this morning, despite all the storms hitting our coasts this hurricane season. Seeing didn't support large scale, but at lower scale I was able to get a lot of interesting data on today's wonderful proms, the active region, and a potential new sunspot in the active region (two visible umbra, so should be a spot I think?). Included a large mosaic of the active region in HA and some comparison CaK data. Took a little peak at some proms in CaK as well, couldn't get a sharp representation, but was able to at least see that they're there which is interesting, still working on this.

150mm F8 Refractor + Quark + 0.5x Focal Reducer + ASI174MM (HA)
100mm F12 Refractor + PST CaK & Chroma 393.4nm Filter + 3x Barlow + ASI174MM (CaK HR)
40mm F10 Refractor + PST CaK & Chroma 393.4nm Filter + ASI174MM (CaK Disc)

Excellent images, Marty. The chromospheric network on the CaK prom image is amazing. I don't recall seeing texture such as that anywhere else on SC.
