2021-03-29 - Nice spring day with some nice seeing (HA/CaK)

Post by JochenM »

The weather has been fairly decent here lately (early spring vibes setting in). Unfortunately, work has been extremely busy so I quite simply haven't gotten the time to do any imaging. Until today that is; managed to squeeze in a quick session over lunch.

Predictions were that seeing would be in the 1.5 arcsec range; which I think was fairly accurate. Some nice activity on the disk (in both HA/CaK) along with a few decently sized proms; picked a good day it seems.

Setup:

HA: 80ED, Quark Chromosphere, 35nm Baader H-Alpha, IMX174
CaK 80ED @ 60mm f/15, Lunt CaK b1800, IMX291

Thanks for looking!

Very nice work, Jochen. The detail is outstanding in all of these. I especially notice the prominences. I like the black on yellow color scheme you used! 👍🏻

Thanks everyone, always appreciate the nice comments.
