Re: May 23, 2020 AR in Ha

Thank you, Jack, Dan, Terry, and James for the kind comments. Rainer, "crispy"? I hope not overly so. I do have a tendency to process the images until the pixels cry out for me to stop. These images are beginning to look less photographic and more cartoonish to me. Maybe related to the haze they wer...

May 23, 2020 AR in Ha

Hi All, Not even a bit of blue sky this morning, only white haze and clouds. It's been so long since I've imaged the Sun I had to give it a try. The region of activity was the sole target as the proms were pretty much washed out. To my surprise the sky was steady. The 6" Mak was used along with the ...

Re: Today's SUN (20200515) | DS LUNT60

Great images, Pedro. That's a good looking Duplex. I love the color of the older ones and those Questar Brandons are quite special as well. Thanks for the link to the article.

Alexandra,
Supurb images and animation! You and the Solarscope are a great combination. The animated proms look alive, reminds me sea creatures somewhat. Very nicely done.

Re: May 1st & 2nd AR2760 + Prom

Good looking proms in that image, Leo. I also see the filiprom in your image. The darker filiment in my image is probably due to bandwidth. I double stacked the Solar Spectrum etalon with a Quark Combo for that shot. I see that the imaging information on the photo is missing the Quark. Most filiprom...

Re: Proms and 'surface' in Ha May 9th '20

Hi Stu,
You sure have had a great run of images recently. Today's images are no exception. I especially find the first one quite nice with a unique surface texture and well defined spicules. The disturbed region turned out well too. Thanks.

May 6, 2020 Prom and small disturbance

Went solar fishing in a sea of clouds this morning. Only caught two.
The small region south of the equator near the center and some proms on the NW limb.

Nicely done Rusted. That is what proms images should look like, at least to my thinking.

May 4, 2020 Proms and regions of disturbance

There was some great imaging here today and the solar features were well documented. I'm a little late to the party but I'll post a few that might be interesting. AR12760 is slipping over the horizon uneventfully with two disturbed regions following behind. Another region off to the SE shows some ac...

May 1st capture unprocessed stack

Hi All, Stu asked if I would post an unprocessed image stack for others to process. I would love to see how other processing techniques work on one of my captures. Keep in mind that this stack is not "Valery Quality" material. I used a F15, 6" Mak with a Baader ERF up front, a 2x telecentric amplifi...

May 3, 2020 AR 12760 and Prom

It won't be long before we say goodbye to the active region. Might be my last shot before the clouds roll in but it has been fun. Today's images were taken with the 6" Mak, Solar Spectrum, and PGR Grasshopper GX. The prom was the one on the SE limb. Phil 20200503_092620_AR12760.jpg 20200503_100706_P...

Re: May 1st & 2nd AR2760 + Prom

Thanks for the comments. Glad you liked the images.

Valery, the exposure for the Quark + Solar Spectrum filaprom shot was 66ms and a medium high gain.

Stu, sure I'll post a un-processed stacked image. I would find that interesting.

Yesterday and today were clear and good for imaging. I continue to follow the active region 12760 as it makes it's way across the disk. Two shots from the first of May are presented and one from the second of May. A nice filaprom on the SE limb was captured also. The 6" Mak, Solar Spectrum (SO 1.5 0...
