Prominences 9SEPT2018

Post by Albuqshutterbug » Mon Sep 10, 2018 5:59 am

Played around today and shot a few 1 minute videos of the sun. I used a Lunt pressure tuned solar scope mounted on a celestron CGEM tracking mount. Images were captured with a celestron 236M mono CMOS video camera set at 8 gain and 60 frames per second.
I stacked 20 percent of 2300 frames using Autostakket2 and adjusted wavelets in Registax6.
I sized and trimmed the image in Photoshop CC and this is the resulting image.
I chose not to add color to this image to preserve details.

Thank you very much Franco.
This little scope has been very good to me.
I only wish I could find a decently priced 60mm etalon for it.
