2021-02-23 - A bit of everything

Post by JochenM » Tue Feb 23, 2021 4:16 pm

A quite windy, but nice and sunny day here. The latter has been a rare commodity here lately; so putting the scopes out obviously.

In between the gusts of wind, the seeing actually wasn't half bad (much to my surprise). No shortage of interesting things to capture, so decided to do it all. Some of it worked out reasonably well, others not so much and got binned.

Seeing how there was a big and relatively bright prom on the southwestern limb; I figured I'd try to capture it in CaK again (never really worked out in the past). I think it came out pretty well, apart from some pattern noise I'll need to figure out next time.

Setup:

HA: 120mm f10 achromat (150 f8 masked), Quark Chromosphere, Baader 35nm H-Alpha, IMX174.
WL: 120mm f10 achromat (150 f8 masked), Baader Herschel Wedge, Baader Solar Continuum, IMX291.
CaK: 120mm f10 achromat (150 f8 masked), Lunt CaK b1800, Baader Blue CCD, IMX291.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Dan. Challenging season for most of us, so take what we can get I suppose.
