Visual Report 09/01/2021

Post by AndiesHandyHandies » Sat Jan 09, 2021 8:31 pm

Hi

A cold light breeze day today with Sun!

Mak180 1800mm 35nm KG3 Omega BF CP 25mm Clave'

Could see the proms in Montanas image. Mine inverted and rotated?

12.30 UT
The two large ones at 8.30 for me.

Under them to start with a small hedge? with bright top and a fine small jet before the two large proms.

An Eiffel tower with little bright bar under at top and larger bar under. Then a mortice prom, wider at the top, with a central projection.

I could see the leaning prominence at top right but not the filament and the one other prominence bottom right which was a wide multi-peaked mountain.

By the two large prominences I could see the dark semi-circle filament with dark spot below.

1.20 UT

90mm F6.7 35nm KG3 Combo Prominence 25mm Clave'

2x ES TE 1200mm See the main proms

3x Vision King 3x TE 1800mm Main proms as Mak180

3x Long Revelation >1800mm Main proms as Mak180

1.45 UT Combo Chromosphere

See the dark semi-circle filament with dark spot below

3x Vision King The filament greyer and less surface details

2.00 UT

4.2x Chromosphere Proms not as sharp and dimmer. Filament visible.

The Chromosphere better in the 127mm F7.5 Triplet.

Convert the PST with lenses for the 127mm and try that next time.

Cheers. Andrew.

Nice report thanks Andrew. Just cloud for me yesterday and looks like today the weather is going to pull the same trick.

An excellent report Andrew, do you have a wedge in when you view, that will make everything back to front compared to my images :) certainly the big U shaped filament was the best feature on the disc :hamster:
