Re: May 14 2021 WL only.

Thank you James for the interesting report and your interpretation of what you see. Today I also saw this "crescent" on a laptop screen, though without such details as you have seen.

We also have birds singing, seagulls and swallows during the day, and nightingales at night.

Re: 05.14.21 Sun in Lunt50

Thanks for your comments. Filip, thanks for your recommendation, that's what I wanted to do at first. But if I made the background dark, then small protrusions on the limb disappeared, as in the color version. I am just studying your magic program, Alexandra recommended it to me. I think I will lear...

Re: My first Hα animation with D = 200 mm (and a flare)

Before an imaging session I check the news & warnings on Space Weather , also the recent few hours animation on GONG to see which AR has the tendency to flare. If I shoot from a location with good Internet access, I can also occasionally check GONG in real time (to see if e.g. I should slew to ...

05.14.21 Sun in Lunt50

Hello everyone. Today it is cloudy and windy, the visibility is good, sometimes terrible. I wanted to make an animation, but half of the stacks went to the basket, maybe I'll still try to put together a short video. In the meantime, the sun is in Ha 14.05.21. I am learning ImPPG, and experimenting w...

Re: small animation of May 13

Great job, all shots are amazing. Great detail.

Wonderful animation, you can see the boiling of the chromosphere, the granules go up and down, a bewitching sight.

Re: 11th May'21 image - processing-request idea please ?

Hi Terry. There is also a way to combine the protrusions and the surface. It definitely works in Ha, I don't know about Calcium. To do this, a monochrome stack with a surface must be converted to RGB, in Photoshop it is two mouse clicks. I think it's not more difficult in other programs. Then you ne...

I recently tried shooting WL and failed. Realizing how difficult it is and looking at yours, the only thing I c...

Re: 11th May image - further processed - request please ?

Hi Terry.

I am very sorry that you have vision problems, I hope that you will recover soon.

The picture is good. The format is interesting, it is similar to the pictures taken by a coronagraph.

Hello everybody. After a short break caused by bad weather and solving the "problem" with my Lunt50. Thanks so much to Terry and Mark for that, and also thanks to GreatAttractor, Raf and Alexandra for their comments. Without you, I definitely would not have done it. 05.13.21 Ha 10% of 1000...

Re: Problem with Lunt 50

Ivan, Greatattractor developed a superb sharpening tool specific to solar imaging called ImPPG. Download it for free and have a try, it will give you a much greater ability to finely adjust the Lucy Richardson deconvolution. At the moment you have it set quite aggressive. If you try ImPPG it is les...

Hi Terry. Today I tried to shoot with a monochrome camera. Video 1000 frames, I stacked 30% using a 2X Barlow lens. SharpCap does not support qhy img0s, so all settings are in print screen. I also shot a few single shots with a color camera. You said that you could try to process my pictures. I'll p...
