Full discs of February 21st - ASI 178MM

Post by krakatoa1883 » Sun Feb 21, 2021 6:18 pm

A very welcomed hole in the clouds (the first in the last two weeks) allowed me to capture few discs in WL, CaK (with aperture reduced to 50 mm due to unfavourable seeing) and H-alpha. There was almost nothing to image in WL except granulation and two tiny spots in the northern hemisphere. While imaging in H-alpha clouds returned so the image came out hazy. All images with ASI 178MM.

Right click then enlarge to see at full size. Thanks for looking.
