I presume the Halpha are single stack? the proms are superb :)

Alexandra

The second one is in double stack. I always seem to image proms better than I do the disc. I don't know why. I did miss seeing large filaments on the disc.

Ivan, Nicely done. The AR plages stand out well. I never could get them to " pop " like this.

Re: Sol from the 12th of May 2021.

Your images resemble mine a bit Eric, but sharper. You can see AR12822 but it does not stand out very well. I think it's because it's plage is not large or bright and AR12823 is even smaller.

Looks good Eric!

Re: Thank you!!! Excitement!!! First light Lunt130MT

Alexandros,
It's amazing you got images this good by holding the scope over a chair without a mount! And I complain about using mounts that lack motorized tracking. I can't wait to see what you will do with a real mount!

Congratulations on the new scope!

James, your reports are like an exciting book, I want more and more. You have a talent for writing, when you described granulation, it seemed to me that I saw it too. Your shots are great. I recently tried shooting WL and failed. Realizing how difficult it is and looking at yours, the only thing I ...

These are absolutely incredible. I love high resolution granulation images. The granules test the scope and other equipment, an observers visual and imaging skills including processing and of course test the seeing conditions. When all are right it has a big WoW factor.

I caught this flare visually Sunday using my SMII60. I did not get a view like this though. That's an awesome animation at a considerable magnification.
