Sol from the 1st of December 2018.

Post by eroel » Mon Dec 03, 2018 2:36 pm

Hi:
Went to the rural observatory, beautiful sunny day but with bad seeing, so had time for some shots with the 6" f/12 AP refractor using the ATM Daystar filter and also the Televue 76mm f/7 with a set of old 40mm Coronado filters. for the FD´s. ( love those old Coronado 40, David Lunt paired them)
I just had time for a few shots and made a quick recording and processing and not even correctly oriented the shots. because my wife invited 5 of her girlfriends from school to the ranch, :oops: (well they are over 76, so I had to take them on a tour around the place), so no more solar imaging. :(
Thanks for looking,
Eric.
