The Sun - 2nd June 2020

Post by David_The_Bears_Fan » Tue Jun 02, 2020 10:27 am

Woke to cloud this morning :( Fortunately it was that thin cirrus stuff that I could work either around / through. Lots going on still, although the spots / pores seem to have vanished there's still lots of prominence activity.

Start off with the Ca-K FD's. Couldn't get it to stitch initially but a little persistence and I managed to get ICE to do it properly!

Some nice looking prominences

In white light I managed to grab some more granulation although I forgot yo grab a flat so there is a bit of a gradient.

Fine images, with many proms details. Shouldn't they be flipped vertically ?

He just has the North pole at the bottom and the tilting Sun graph is therefore correct. Maybe he lives down under ? :lol:

Yes, it does confuse a bit.

Very nice, Dave. I always admire your Ca II K proms. Lovely WL images too.

David,
Those pores can appear and disappear quite quickly. I managed a very tiny single pore in the late morning hours.

Mark,
I eagerly await your processed images. :)

Yes, I need to remember to flip the disk so it is the "right" way up in future.
