Re: May 28 2020 Observations

Thanks you guys. It was a very quick observation. I didn't have time to study details very well and it clouded back up before I could even check out the white light view.

Re: New AR on approaching limb

The Sun is certainly trying to stir from his slumber lately.

The northernmost AR is nearing the approaching limb and looking hot!!

May 28 2020 Observations

Thru rain and cloud I finally pulled off a quick observation through a small gap in the cloud allowing me about 5 minutes observing time just after 2pm local time. It was a very quick view so I did not have a chance to see detailed specifics. White light not done today. Coronado SolarMax II 60 DS 16...

Re: 26May - Experimenting with ARIES D-ERF +C11+ Televue x2.5 barlow - New Image added 27 May

I am curious of Alexandra's contact with TeleVue concerning the PowerMate. I have a friend who really likes his. I don't have one. For nighttime use I have both a Meade and Celestron 2x model and for Solar a Meade Coronado Cemax 2x barlow. But I am only visual. Imaging is more demanding.

Pedro,
I just watched the video. Awesome setup. An observatory makes things so much easier! And I love the music. I see a good ol' boy from Portugal likes some good Appalachian mountain Bluegrass music! You would be at home here! :)

Re: New AR on approaching limb

SDO is nearing the end of it's operational life I read. It's onboard fuel supply could run out as soon as the second half of this year. I hate to see it go down. There is no real replacement for it being planned that I know of. And no way to refuel it. SOHO still operates at a limited capacity. Sure...

Excellent image there and as your comments and that of James, keeping things simple without too much work has many advantages, such as having time to enjoy the mandatory-coffee etc., etc.

Well done

Re: Prom+semiactive region, and full disc from 05-26-20

What IS the double limb? Photosphere bleed-through or the spicule layer or both? Ya, from my very limited understanding its bleedthrough of the photosphere. Doublestacking can eliminate it, but double stacking aint cheap, lol. I'll be saving for quite some time before I'm able to eliminate it. I ha...

Andrew, It’s nice to see another do visual reports on here. No insult of course to all the great imagers on here but there is just something special about seeing it with one’s own eyes. And just like it takes good skill and learning to be a good imager it also takes a lot of hands on training and ex...
