Discs of March 29

Post by krakatoa1883 »

First days of a true spring, finally. Seeing not very good for hires yet but enough for discs. I am happy that my damaged B1200 returned as new from repair @Bresser, this is the second time I require service by the European Lunt distributor and I am really satisfied of how they solved both problems, now even the disc imaged in SS shows some filaments while before repair there were always none. CaK disc is by DSing two modules. Thanks for looking.

Thanks to all. That large prominence that is on the right of the full disc today appears to have developed a large plume that will probably lift off soon.
