Re: August 10 2022 Observations. WL through clouds.

Good luck on imaging Mark. You'll be doing CaK I bet! I have never heard of this disease but looking it up I also see it's found here in the SE US too. I have been in a lot of water around here in my life but haven't gotten it. I don't know anyone who has but that doesn't mean it isn't here. Like yo...

Re: CaK 10th August

What make of filter are you tinkering with?

These look good. I always enjoy your CaK work.

Re: August 10 2022 Observations. WL through clouds.

Eric,
It's not looking good here for Thursday either. Today was cloudy and I barely got this basic observation off. Good luck on sunnier skies for you.

Mark,
Do early. The seeing will be better then anyway. You could go on the boat and jump off for a cooldown!

Excellent resolution!!! I think you have the biggest solar telescope I have seen here yet.

The intergranular bright point lanes are visible!

August 10 2022 Observations. WL through clouds.

My session was a very brief one through thin clouds in an overcast sky around 17:00 UTC. The temperature is 78F ( 25.5C ) Orion 70mm Solar Telescope. 25x ( WL ) I can see five spot groups on the WL photosphere. One in the northern hemisphere that has an NOAA number and four in the southern hemispher...

Re: August 9 2022 Imaging Session

True!! I have a bad habit of trying to center the sun on the chip. Thanks for the advice Alexandra. Doublestack always seems to be more challenging for me to get an evenly tuned and illuminated disc. Thanks Mark! Solbrillante, My setup is simple. No tracking at all here. I have to use really short 3...

Sumpy,
My daughter lives in Weaverville just north of Asheville and heads north into Tennessee fairly often. With most on here being a significant distance from me it’s nice to see someone close!!

Sumpy, I noticed that you are almost a local to me. I live just east of Hendersonville in the Edneyville community of western North Carolina. You appear to live just across the state line in NE Tennessee. My family are from the Sevierville/Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. That's pretty cool. That's a n...

Re: 9th Aug Sunspot movements

Technically you are right John. 540nm is not continuum but a part of the green spectrum. I use “ continuum “ or “ WL “ in my posts because it’s a continuum filter to view the photosphere as white light would. But yes, you are right.

Nice showing of the spot movements too! 👍🏻

Variable seeing. 84F ( 28.8C ) The equipment used is the SMII60 DS and the Orion70 with the PGR Grasshopper camera using ASTRO IIDC and GIMP on the MacBook Pro. I used the 540nm filter with the...
