Just a dream 10-22-2020

Post by justapictureposter » Sun Jan 10, 2021 3:49 pm

As some of you already know, prominences can be captured with a Calcium K filter system.

This time-lapsed image is the result after 10 years of random filter experiments; wasted money and endless trial and error.

The original Raw files in .tif format have been compressed into a zip file and you can download them using the first google drive link,
do whatever you want with the files- people rarely share their property.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/19m2C-e ... sp=sharing

Here is a direct download link to a .mkv HD-Video file for play on your living room television; or to share at schools/universities.
(you will not regret sharing this file!!)

Excellent. Just shows what can be done with optimal filters.

That is soo good, presumably you are using the Chroma filter.

WoW!!! excellently done! The Sun is all in motion. I don't think I have seen many people do animations using CaK. Maybe more should. Your trial and error has paid off superbly!

My dream? A full multi-band solar setup in my own observatory where I don't have to move scopes/equipment in and out of the house. A full setup for both visual and imaging.

Awesome prominence animation. Loved it. That must be my next CAK imaging project!!

We have record rainfall and the press announced a tropical winter here in Singapore. Have to wait for the weather to pass.
