here is my truss refractor

Best regards

So nice!

Did you build it DIY or was it made custom by someone? Would love to spec out something in the 8" range.

Re: Today's Prominences, Active Region, Filaments, Convection Cells | Aug 12th 2018

Heya, It was cloudy today, and seeing was poor, but there were moments of good seeing between clouds passing, so I stuck out and glad I did, as I got some decent data this morning. I worked the 6 inch refractor this time at two scales, with a 0.5x focal reducer and without as seeing allowed. Then sw...

Re: Kelvin came back! 2018.08.12

Awesome resolution and great captures!

Would love to see your scope (I'm sure I've seen it, but I always love to see it again, I dream of a truss refractor).

Thank you for sharing the Quark Calcium, that's high on my list right now and I like seeing what it can do on bigger scopes!

Re: Ha Quantum filter PE 0.4Å

Lovely setups. From the videos, it does look like your issues are probably software related. Not the camera. It's likely the drivers of the camera and compatibility with the software. I've had a bunch of people reach out to me about using SharpCap and not having access to gamma, etc, with various ca...

Re: Today's Big Prominence Group & Convection Cells | Aug 10th 2018

Thanks!

Figured i was off-band. First time it happened. Everything was so hot yesterday, even the camera felt hot. I guess at Zenith the sun is pouring even more heat with less atmosphere and I wasn't blocking all of it well enough? Might be time for a full aperture DERF.... sigh!

Re: Today's Big Prominence Group & Convection Cells | Aug 10th 2018

I have some weird results on a few too. I'm not sure if I was off-band due to temperatures (it was way too hot today) or if it was just good seeing and a wider bandpass due to single stack or what, but it looks like convection cells leaking through to the chromosphere blending the two. They are pres...

Today's Big Prominence Group & Convection Cells | Aug 10th 2018

Heya, Not a lot of proms today, but one really nice grouping. Seeing was decent between the clouds today, maybe the turbulence of the summer is finally calming. This was later in the day for me, which is abnormal, so maybe it was a fluke. I was able to image at the full scale of the 6 inch refractor...

Today's Active Regions & Prominences | 656nm & 393nm | 60mm & 150mm | Aug 7th 2018

Heya, Woke up to some decent weather, some clouds, but plenty of sucker holes to see through and a light haze. Seeing was much better today here and there than before. I was able to push the image scale higher today and imaged at 152mm aperture and 5040mm focal length with the Quark on some smaller ...

Active Regions & Prominence | 656.28nm & 393nm | Aug 6th 2018

Heya, Wonderful clear skies this morning, but dreadful, truly dreadful seeing. I couldn't manage anything at large scale so I just stuck to smaller scales today. Very few prominences worth noting, a single grouping that is fairly big and interesting on the limb. The two active regions are still pres...

Heya, Woke up to a cloudy, but blue sky. I don't mind shooting through sucker holes! Managed some decent seeing at smaller scales. At my largest scale, it was challenging to get workable data as the seeing just wouldn't support the focal length. I dropped my scale with a 0.5x focal reducer and manag...

I've been defeated 3 times with large aperture so far. Two times, i got zero, literally deleted the data and moved on. This 3rd time, i got some data, but not much I could work out of it, it was just too poor with bad seeing. I grabbed 3000 frames on those and even 31 of those frames stacked out to ...

Heya, Man today was rough. I woke up and saw clouds, but saw some sucker holes. This is 9:30am and the sun has barely cleared my East facing Live Oaks. The seeing was dreadful. I started out with my 6" to see the prominences. Most of the big proms from the past two days are gone. Only one major pair...

Heya, Mars opposition last night was a total bust of clouds. But, I woke up to a cloudless sky. Weird? Stupid Florida...
