Re: Sol from the 22nd of September 2020.

Eric,
An excellent showing of what the Sun had to offer. Super prom details and impressive full disks. The consistent detail across the disk from limb to limb is greeat and something I have yet to achieve with my LS80.
Thanks,
Phil

Franco, I see tiny spots too, in your images I mean. Nicely done. Fingers crossed as well.

Re: Sept. 22, 2020

Thank you all for the very nice comments, a motivation boost as well. I hope to get another chance to image this one but with better seeing conditions.
James, I hope to have at least two more months of shorts weather here.

Sept. 22, 2020

Hi All, After almost a month since imaging last, the urge to capture the new region of activity was too great to ignore. Seeing and clouds were uncooperative but it did not matter much. What surprised me was how much the sun's position had changed over the last month. I had to lug the equipment quit...

August 26, 2020 LS80

Hi All, I finally had a chance to image this morning. The Sun sure has quieted down recently but I tried to make the most of it today. The Lunt 80 DS went out this time because it's easy. First up is a rather soft full disk composite followed by an inverted disk sharpened up a bit. The only region o...

Re: Does this appear to be overprocessed?

Hi Bruce,
I see what you mean especially around the smaller filament. I'm curious as to the scope used and the processing filter applied to this image. It sure seems like unusual details, at least it's nothing I could capture.

Thank you Rusted, Eric, Marty, and Mark for the additional comments. Florida weather has been providing very little quality Sun time recently.

Alexandra, I too liked the first image the best. The others seem unrealistic and cartoonish but have some entertainment value.

July 24, 2020 Spot

Hi All, Just a few shots of the spot on the 24th with the 6" Mak. The first image was taken before the etalon was up to temperature (blue wing). I wanted to make sure that I captured something in case the clouds rolled in. The next images were at the usual temp. Phil 20200724_075004_blue_wing.jpg 20...
