28 to 30 Nov 18 - Sun from 16th floor Balcony in Bangkok (New added)

Post by yltansg » Wed Nov 28, 2018 3:38 pm

We had beautiful sunshine today in Bangkok.

Image

I am on vacation and have brought my faithful workhorse - a Borg 76mm refractor. I also brought a Vixen Porta AL/AZ mount, solarscope 50mm DS H-Alpha etalons, Lunt CAK B1200 diagonal, a 4" Thousand Oak WL filter and a Point Grey Grasshopper 3 camera.

Here is the setup from the balcony.

The lonely active region was observed in both H-Alpha and Calcium-K wavelengths, but not in WL.

Thanks for viewing.

Thanks Franco. This is the first time I have brought a mobile tri-band solar setup for my vacation. Very glad to be able to observe the Sun 3 days in a row. The sunspot is hardly visible now. Here is the tri-band collection for this morning.

What beautiful views :) the Sun as well :) it is interesting how these active regions are appearing quite regularly but are very fleeting in duration. They seem to pop up and go in just a few days. During maximum we sometimes saw active regions on the 3 time round. It is all very fascinating.

Have a great holiday :hamster:

Hi Alfred...

These FD images came out very nicely with the alt-az mount. Nice work.

The city scape looks very nice as well with the sun on the horizon.

Thanks Brian, Raf and Alexandra.

I had half an hour of lightly clouded skies. Caught my final tri-band in Thailand today. I couldn't detect any of the spots. Yes, Alexandra, observing the Sun during minima is also interesting....

I have tested and found the tri-band setup for the Borg 76 on a Vixen Porta Al/AZ mount very practicable.
