May the 6th Solar Activity

Post by David_The_Bears_Fan » Mon May 06, 2019 11:08 am

Early start this morning, looked a bit of a bust when I got up to clouds but they broke around 7:30. Not the best conditions but can't be picky!

White light showed some nice detail including some pores.

Really nice images. Sharp CaK and proms.
(Might need flipping vertically to be north up to match tiltsun?)

I do like the little trail of pores curving away from the main spot, that is lovely little detail. Great images David :bow :hamster:

Hi David
That is a great series - I had my first session on Monday - saw some of the little pops & fluff - glad to see the pop on your CaK!
