Sun FD in H-Alpha 24th of March 2021

Post by arnedanielsen »

Yesterday was mostly scattered clouds, but in the afternoon it cleared enough for a quick imaging session - still through some high cirrus-clouds though.

Superb full disc :bow :hamster: the disc looks very similar to yesterday when I had a peep, so not much changed overnight.

Thank you all for your kind comments!

The resulting image turned out better than I expected considering the amount of cirrus.

Best regards,
Arne
