Re: November 26th Ha Session

Some really nice shots Brian! My fave is the 3rd one from the bottom with the filaprom on the limb.

A disk and 2 animations in poor seeing 12/1/2022

The wind died down but still only 26F/-3.3C when I started with the sun at 18 degrees above the horizon, but without wind it's doable! Seeing varied from pretty decent to horrid rapidly back and forth and the animations demonstrate this well! A bit of activity at new AR3153 which shows a bit better ...

Re: December 1 2022 Observations. New ARs in the East!!

Great report James. I’ll hopefully be finishing up processing on an animation of that prom you described on the NE limb. Seeing wasn’t great but as I checked the scope every now and then I noticed some interesting changes like you described so I hope the animation is decent.

Warren: It seems that another AR is coming around the limb, fingers crossed
That is the one I did captures of. Hope to finish processing the animation this morning.

Re: Today's SUN (20221201) | NEW AR

Great set Pedro! I have been imaging that SE limb for an animation as it appears there is quite a bit of activity around that new spot coming into view. You can see quite a few spikes in your images of that area so I hope the animation turns out OK. The cold temps are causing the image to go off ban...

Re: Quick Full Disk 11/30/2022

Thanks for all of the comments! Magnus, once I have finished an image/animation I delete the video files and save the images and animations to an external HD. I also save the raw stacks that I make the animations from. I have a 2 terabyte external HD that I have had that has about 8 years of files a...

Quick Full Disk 11/30/2022

Clear skies but 25mph gusts and now below freezing so didn't spend a lot of time, just got the disk in the FOV and grabbed some frames! Looks like a number of areas on the limb with some surge prom activity at the 4, 8 and 10:00 positions. Probably would have made for an interesting animation for an...

Re: Today's big prom 30.11.

I am glad you got some sun and got a session in. I am currently awaiting on the sky to clear off. It rained all night and now the front is passing through. We cleared off but have 25mph winds and it's below freezing now, but at least I can see the sun! Maybe try a shot through one of the windows la...

Eruption animation from GONG images 11/28/2022

No breaks in the clouds so noticed this nice eruption on the SE Limb on the GONG website so grabbed images to make this animation. Maybe someone caught a bit of this, you can see the time stamp on the animation. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52532081851_c3efa28bc9_o.gif Eruption-GONG-Images-11...
