Ha Images fron Jan 21st

Post by MapleRidge » Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:41 pm

I've been having issues uploading these images...thanks to Stephen for his suggestions...if the images are here they worked :cheer:

Ok, so finally a clear day here with decent seeing and at -8C it is 10 deg warmer than my last two goes at the Sun :). Imaged from my backyard observatory near Cambray, ON Canada.

I have posted a pair of Ha images, each through a Lunt LS80T solar scope, double stacked with a Lunt LS75FHa etalon and a B1200Ha blocking filter. The full disk used a 0.8x telecompressor to give about 450mm of focal length, and the higher res image uses a 2x teleconverter to give me 1,120mm of focal length. The camera is a Lumenera Infinity 2-1M, controlled via Lucam Recorder and processed in Registax.

There were many small scale changes and interactions between groups during the 2 hour window that I was imaging. The large filament was very impressive, and if it holds together for another few days it will make an impressive prominence.

Questions and comments are always welcome,
Brian

Thanks for setting the images up to display...I think that most of my problem posting was with the comapatability mode. Will try more when I get a chance.

Brian, stunning images, the full disk is especially compelling.
