Re: Disk and SW Limb animation through the haze 6/22/2024

Very nice! That's a very photogenic filament, but pretty quiet during the animation.
I got a P1 Saturn last fall, but so far have not gotten the cooling unit. Probably worth a try though.

Re: Again on the color of sunspots (AR3712)

Very well done!
What filter/wedge did you use? How did you get your starting white balance?
I've only tried mineral moons a few times, and had the best success by initially equalizing the RGB channels in PixInsight.

Thanks,
