Re: Lunt LS60 DS – Testing a new toy

Re: Lunt LS60 DS – Testing a new toy

These images look fantastic Ronnie :hamster: you live at a dizzying height :shock: When I first saw what you meant by the rings I thought instantly what Mark said. I get this same effect with the Solarscope and the Grasshopper 3 when the gamma is too high. I found a limit that I should never go ove...

Ronnie,

You need a new b/w camera and you should use 16bit image data to get rid of these "rings".
Thanks for your help Valery. I have a Basler acA1920-155. I'll test it in my next session ;) .

For second image I´ve used the "curve tool" in two different layers (one for edge and other for surface). About Gamma, normally I use Gamma enabled...

Hello friends! Last week I did the first test with my new toy, a Lunt LS60 DS. I´ve liked it, but I´m having some challenges with “ghost discs” (more than I was expecting).
