Low activity, yes but you did pick up the faculae in the WL image on the left of your three-lights mosaic. I got it visually today.

Thanks James

There is always something interesting to observe/image

The triple stack image does not show a lot of details. I was able to tune the three etalons to get an uniform disk though

I wonder if triple stacking would show more visually than double stacking? The image may be too dim visually though.

At least you have captured the few details for the quiet Sun Pedro.
Well done

Nice images, but low activity and much clouds at home.
Abrazo,

Excellent series of images again Pedro :bow

The triple stack performed well again...I ran the same today as well and will post later.

Great images Pedro but the triple stack doesn't look all that well tuned, it looks like a single stack?

:bow :hamster:

Thanks

I agree Alexandra, the triple stack looks like a single stack image. It is not easy to adjust the three etalons. I always take notes and photograph everything (position of the etalons). It takes a lot of tuning... The double stack images show more detail though

That's exactly why I stopped triple stacking - too much fiddling and took too long, was cloudy by the time had got it sorted :lol: :lol: :lol:
