May 4th animation update

Post by Martin_S » Tue May 05, 2020 7:46 am

Here's an update to yesterdays post. I had problems with my computer which I fixed today, so I was able to go back to using Photoshop for batch processing. Here is a one hour time lapse animation, taken earlier in the day.
Imaged with My Lunt double stacked 60mm solar telescope and ASI290 camera.
