Solar imaging session from 18th February 2021

Post by Stardust5858 » Sat Feb 20, 2021 10:01 pm

Hi all, sorry for the two day delay in posting these. Haven't had time to make a mask for the 80ed either so apologies for that too. Lunt 60DS and 80ed baader K-Line. Had my covid vacintaion which made me feel not to well yesterday but a little better today. I could possibly have done a little better with the post processing.

Well Nigella, where do I start..
Fantastic, Fabulous, Beautifully-processed and whatever else, for such interesting captures.

Filaments, Prominences and those spots too, are so well coloured and presented and so many to look through too.

Thank you for sharing your work and wish you well over the jab..

Cheers
Terry

Thanks Alexandra, appreciate your comments. Hopefully you'll get some sunshine next weekend, forecast is better but it's still fairly long range for our climate. Looking forward to the zoom meeting if I can get it working, lol.

Hi Nigella, your "tweaked" PSX_20210220_232339.jpg (360.33 KiB) is one of the best I've seen this year and longer too.
You've got the balance between proms and surface detail - perfect and the colouring is just right too.

Thanks for sharing
Terry

Thanks Terry, appreciated. I used a slightly different
processs so I'm going to try and replicate it again when I've got some more images. I should really write down the work flow so I remember, lol.

I also sometimes needs to write the work-flow Nigella - until I repeat the process enough.
