Prom animation 30th March 2021

Post by Carbon60 »

Here's the large NW prom animated over a period of 35 minutes. I was going to run this thing over an hour, but the seeing conditions were worsening by the minute. You'll see quite some variation over the course of the sequence of images.

Captured on my 150mm/DS Lunt 35 using a Basler acA1920-155um camera and 2.5x Powermate.

72 frames in total. ImPPG alignment.

Thanks for looking.

Fantastic Stuart!!! :bow
Thanks for sharing.
Can you please explain what "150mm/DS Lunt 35" is? DS is double stacking, I suppose with Lunt H-a? But what is 35? And what is your 150mm scope?
What would you say (in arc seconds) for your starting (amazing resolution) and ending seeing conditions?

Thanks once more,
Alexandros

Mind-Blowing when you think of how fast the plasma is actually moving. It would cross the Earth's size in mere seconds!

Fantastic work Stu!
I also got a lot of images from my Quark and 70mm refractor. I will try and process these in the coming days but am not an expert at them. It looked quite good, and I imaged and got lots of images for an hour. Not sure if the framing was all the same, as there was some drift, and variation over the hours.

Is a single video file any good ? It looked quite impressive where I was sitting.

Thanks.
Magnus

Many thanks, Alexandros.
150 mm is the objective diameter. The Lunt 35 is a former Ha scope (35mm objective) no longer sold by Lunt. Yes DS means double stacked (two Lunt 35 etalons).
