Re: Anybody want to share their unprocessed source AVIs

Hello Jack, I downloaded your 7 GB files of high res area of sunspot in H-alpha I think, Thanks very much ! Those files are amazing. Have you used ImPPG yet? With some care, you could get really fine images with those equipment and that 7 GB file!! I am new to solar , have only dipped into solar wit...

Re: Anybody want to share their unprocessed source AVIs

Have you worked out the maximum size of files you can accept via dropbox? Maybe you can send an empty Memory usb stick with a SAE and postage to a trusted forum member? I still think you can practice with simple things like Lunar imaging files, so the Sun can be done later after you are more familia...

Re: Anybody want to share their unprocessed source AVIs

Maybe this can be done via Dropbox or something. I thought .SER files are better as its 16 bit.
AVI files are only 8 bit.

Re: Solar FLAT for FULL Disc only - cannot seem to be able to use it

Thank you so much Marty. :P :P You've answered all my questions perfectly! How do you know that you are making the correct size "mask for your telescope" to reduce the aperture to 60mm? Is it simply the hole in the middle of your "front filter" is 60mm in diameter? What material do you use for the ...

Re: AR2737 & Full disc | HA | April 2nd 2019

Thank you so much ! Fantastic ! I am going to try and get some practice with deconvolution and processing to see how my system matches (Quark Chromosphere/ED70 and ASI120mm-S on a slow laptap USB2.0.

Thanks!

Re: Solar FLAT for FULL Disc only - cannot seem to be able to use it

Heya, I recently was able to successfully do a full FOV disc flat without any special anything. I use a tilt adapter to first eliminate newtonian rings if present. Next, was the real workhorse, a plastic bag. Not just any plastic bag. I've tried plastic bags for years. The key is to find a plastic ...

Re: Solar FLAT for FULL Disc only - cannot seem to be able to use it

Heya, Here's the cereal bag that I use to make flat frames for full and partial discs where the disc doesn't fully illuminate the FOV. I double up the cereal bag so it's extra diffuse. The transmission is very low due to this. But, as long as your histogram is very close to your imaging histogram, ...

Re: Surface and Prominence - December 12, 2018

Hi, great captures! I have started imaging only very recently, capturing using Sharpcap, although I also have Firecapture! I wonder what gain/exposures you used for the ASI120mm-S. I have the same camera but a 70mm ED refractor connected to a diagonal and then the Quark chromosphere. I have experime...

Re: New version of ImPPG

Hi Alexandra,
I only downloaded the latest version 0.5.4 only yesterday. I have a Quark Chromosphere filter, only used once so far, for my ED70 refractor.

Here is my ImPPG started up:

I think the icons image files are missing, maybe there was an error in the unzipping.
