large gif test 13.mb - high speed timelapse

Post by TheSkyBurner » Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:19 am

This is a raw time lapse using non-processed images, 124 frames. Large file, high speed test.

I am looking for ferret motion that is just not visible in processed imaging.
Ferrets are visible as dark wispy lines, most are curvy and worm like in shape. Look closely, there are no less than 20 in this one animation!

Apollo, you need to study those dark line ferrets and then publish an article in a scientific magazine! I never have read about them before.
May be then some scientists with develop and make a good extra narrow band filter to study these solar features in details.

With your present filter I cant see them with enough confidence. Now I see one illusive feature and after 10 min I see another one and so on.

I don't understand why processing and stacking makes them completely disappear! Even just a 10 frame stack and they get blurred out.

I am dead certain it is a type of "metallic fog" tracing a magnetic field over the photosphere that is not quite chromospheric, and not a filament. It must belong to its own category because they are relatively short lived, but lasting long enough to not be a flux region. They are also massive in length, some stretching equator to pole when seen in a wide field.

From my perspective, I mentally visualize a lake with bands of vapor streamers.

The only thing I can find research wise that would explain what these might be, are a magnetic phenomena called "Serpentine field lines"
