AR2781 November 7, 2020 with good seeing - Ha images added

Post by ffellah » Sat Nov 07, 2020 4:55 pm

Hello everybody: today was an ideal morning to image here, with seeing above average. For the first time ever I dared to image at f/43.7 with the 152mm refractor, the Sodium Quark and a 1.6x Barlow on the nose of the ZWO174 camera.

This AR continues to be a very exciting and unique opportunity to image for all of us.

Excellent WL images, Franco. AR2781 looks superb at these image scales.

Thank you very much Leo, Terry, Stu and Rainer. These Ha images were taken with the Hat at F/27.5 and one, very pushed last one, at F/44. I believe I may be close to the maximum I can get out of the Quark Combo.

Franco,
Your sunspot images look good. I can actually see the radial detail in the large sunspot. Something that is still beyond my best iPhone photos. The HaT scope shows the radial detail also in Ha.

Sunspots look like holes in the Sun when viewed in H-alpha.

Great results there, Franco. And a Sodium Quark; don't see that often (look excellent though).
