Re: Thursdays Hazy Sunshine 18th April

An ideal combination of solar and holiday activities, Mark with great results. I always smile when the weather reports say that it’s going to be a lovely sunny day because you just know that it probably isn’t, or it may be, but not ‘our’ type of sunny day with excellent clarity and steady air. Anyho...

AR2738 Approaching Limb

The soon to be departing AR2738 looked wonderful this morning, heading towards the western solar limb, albeit with slightly murky skies spoiling the highest resolution images. Here it is, imaged with my 150mm/DS Lunt 35 mod with 2.5x Powermate and Basler acA1920-155um camera. Two pane mosaic. https:...

Re: Holiday sunshine

Looks like you had a lovely time on your hols. Did you manage to get on the beach and hunt for fossils? There are some wonderful treasure trove rock and fossil shops around the town. Did you pick up any goodies? Lovely solar images. I’m just happy for you that you managed to get on the scopes and im...

Re: Sunday Sun 14th April '19

Many thanks for your kind comments, everyone. I'm hoping for another session on Wednesday, as according to the weather forecast it's supposed to be sunny....we'll see. Sun is one thing, good seeing is quite another. Hopefully the conditions will be kind. Good luck everyone if you get the chance to i...

Re: Sunday, April 14: CaK and H alpha of "The Spot"

Very nice images, Peter. Hopefully the snow won't hang around for very long. Curious to know, though, if a coating of snow on the ground helps or hinders the local seeing conditions.

Sunday Sun 14th April '19

For the third day in a row the morning was clear and bright, although it started out somewhat overcast and I thought the opportunity to image was lost. By 9:00 am, however, things had taken a turn for the better and the cloudy sky had miraculously cleared, although, as I found out when I got set up,...

Sun in Ha and CaK 12th April

Friday morning was beautiful, although, as is so often the case, the seeing conditions were pretty poor with only the briefest of clear viewing. I shot through pretty much all of my SD memory to get something half decent across the spectrum from CaK to Ha. Valery, I ran half my session on the 250mm ...
