Sol from the 14th of July 2020.

Post by eroel » Wed Jul 15, 2020 3:58 am

Hi:
Beautiful hazy but sunny day until lunch time.
Used the 4 scopes, the 102mm f/7 Stellarvue with a very old Daystar T-scanner, the 102mm f/9 Meade with the CaK PSTmod, the Solarmax 90-DS and the Celestron C5 f/10 SCT with a 60mm ERF and the Daystar.
So a lot of processing to do, I just finished this one, but hope tomorrow I can show the rest.
Thanks for looking.
Regards,
Eric.

Hey Eric, look at this. We imaged this very close to the same time. Your image even surpasses my visual view but even in my iPhone image it's recognizable to yours. That's pretty cool actually.

Superb job by the way. Awaiting more!

Alexandra, James, Franco, Terry, Dan, Rod and Stu:
Much appreciated feedback from you, nice that you liked the shots even if they are overprocessed. I have to admit that I am prone at overprocessing, though I was not always like that. ;)
We old timers used to overwork our images, even that the first thing learnt at those times was how to focus, sounds easy but the older timers of my generation always said focus, focus and refocus.
What we learnt?, well we had to know our focusers, there were no motofocusers at that time, so we had to install levers so to move the focus wheel in a more sensitive way, then we had to learn and interpret the seeing patterns and periods so to focus and shoot when we were on the good part of the period.
We learnt how easy is to loose focus in a short time, so we had to refocus every time we did shoot.
When you are looking for the best focus, you have to watch the image and move the focuser in very small steps until you see the enlarged zoomed image (I use 200-300X) stand still from its oscillating period, then I know I am at focus and shoot.
A joy to have motofocusers now, so that is why I make mine with small DC motors and pulleys for my old scopes so to be as sensitive as possible.
These were old timer tips, but they still work in this push button era that go to objects, that focus, that processes, etc...
Keep safe an well all of you.
Thanks for hearing some prehistoric tips.
Eric.
PS. Rod, the Daystar T-Scanner was made for me by Del Woods around the middle 60´s and it is a 0.5 Angstrom, then when Jen got Daystar, she changed the trimmers and housing for a heated one and kept also the manual Tilt adjuster.
I also have an old ATM made by Del too, but it is a 0.45 Angstrom filter that still works beautifully.

Eric, So true! And that also includes downloading apps for an iPhone so you can focus more precisely than the autofocus will do. Trying to milk the most from an unsuitable format for solar imaging.
