Sun in three lights- 19th November 2020

Post by Carbon60 » Thu Nov 19, 2020 3:31 pm

Hi all,

Another chance to capture a few images of the Sun across the spectrum this morning using the smaller aperture scopes. I did try to capture a closer view of AR12783 on my 150mm/Lunt 35, but the seeing conditions just weren't up to it.

Anyhow here's the set as a montage and individual images in colour and monochrome:

As always, thanks for looking.

Really nice set Stu. I had the same problem yesterday with bad seeing and gave up.

I really like the presentation Stuart and great full discs :bow :hamster: I wish I had some more time at the moment to make use of the sunshine gaps. We are back to the usual weather patterns now, sunny when I am at work and rain when I am at home ;)
