Full disk 19-02-2021

Post by rsfoto » Fri Feb 19, 2021 10:17 pm


Finally a day with no wind but the thermal atmospheric conditions were terrible. I was not able to focus in White light ...

During the focusing attempta in White Light I saw there where two pores in the plague visible in H-alpha in the Northeastern quadrant at -65° and +23°.

Lots of filaproms and two quite long filaments in the southern hemisphere.

As usual best seen in full size in a new tab/window :bow

Well done Rainer. Not much action on the sunspot front but plenty with the proms and filaments!

My seeing was horrible today too for me. Your images still turned out good though. Seeing once again how good your images are reminds me of how much I have to learn.
