Hi Pedro, your usual high-standards and results, have shown some good surface detail, even though a relatively quiet day albeit
there has been some interesting prom activity from the other guys later-on...

Thanks
Terry

Great pics.
I am a bit of a newcomer to imaging sunlight. Recently managed to get a double stacked PST.
It seems that the 174mm and cameras using the same chip are the 'goto' choice of Solar imagers.
Does it suit the Lunt 60 particularly well or does it do a good job with most available Ha scopes ?

regards,

Sean.

Thanks guys

I have to add that I still prefer CCD cameras and not CMOS cameras like the ASI174MM. CCDs have less noise and a better dynamic range
