Saturday Sun in CaK 20th Oct.

Post by Carbon60 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 8:41 am

Just back from a week in Dallas on business at a conference. The weather there was appalling with heavy rain on most days with no sun to be seen at all. Unusual for Dallas. I returned home through Newark early Saturday to a surprisingly bright morning and even some sunshine after a few hours sleep, which I needed to stave off the jet-lag.

Not wishing to miss the opportunity, I checked SAT24 and could see that the gap in the clouds was only going to last a short while, so quickly I set up and ran some images in CaK using my Lunt B600 module on my modest Altair Lightwave 72ED-R.

Camera: Basler acA1920-155um with 2.5x Powermate
AS!3 stacking
ImPPG (light touch)
PixInsight

Sure enough, all too quickly the sky turned hazy and the session was over.

Thanks for looking.

Stunning CaK Stuart, it really does show that the Sun is almost completely quiet with no plage apart from one area, so nothing developing then.
It was a beautiful weekend :)
