Re: Active Regions AR3112 , 3110, and 3113

Thank you for sharing these Martin.

It is fascinating to see the flares expanding simultaneously outwards from the epicentre in the second animation.
Much like a central blast but with the expanding wavefront partially hidden, at times, within the active surface layer.

Thank you Mark. :D :bow

Imagine what I can do if/when I can sharply focus the image on the monitor. ;)

"Least mushy" is not an ideal scenario for imaging anything. :mrgreen:

Re: 2.10.2022 AR3110, 3112 & 3113

I agree Chris. The monochrome image shows a bit more detail and contrast though the colored image is aesthetically prettier to the eye. Both are nice in their own way! Thanks! James This may be the lack of sharp detail. Though interestingly, the light bridges on the major spot are still visible. Ha...

Good luck! I hope your seeing conditions are better than mine! ;)
I can't even focus sharply. Pure guesswork.
It's a massive group!

2.10.2022 AR3110, 3112 & 3113

Early cloud cleared to sunshine but with soft and shaky seeing conditions.
The sky is very white around the sun. Best so far but still hoping for better:

Re: 30.09.2022 AR3107, 3110 & 3111

Okay. I'll order a T-S 2" 0.5x focal reducer.

I shall be screwing it to the original MT nosepiece behind the 2" Baader/Beloptik filters.

Thanks again.

Thank you mark Mark. All useful information.

Having had no personal experience of focal reducers can you point me at a suitable candidate?
Does price match quality in this application?

Thanks again.

Thanks Mark. :bow I do keep trying. :D The Lunt 60MT etalon has been a revelation. It is strangely insensitive to tuning though. It doesn't suddenly darken at best tune like the PST etalon did. The Lunt just becomes uneven in brightness across the frame. It doesn't look out of focus and then suddenl...

Re: Bump on the eastern limb.

I found the image of the equatorial mound on my laptop and finished processing it.

Bump on the eastern limb.

I noticed a raised, flat topped mound right on the eastern limb this afternoon.
It was active in the sense that there were small jets or proms emanating from it.
Worth a look if you have the chance.
I did not proceed with my image processing of the mound as it was not up to standard.

On the time would one use their local time or UTC? UTC would seem to be more appropriate.

James,

UTC. That was covered in the first message from Christian above.
The dating format is formal too. YYYYMMDD_FFF
