Re: March 5 2021 Observations. White Light, GONG and SDO.

Nice report James, looks like the area that has rounded the limb is visible as plage, can't tell if there are spots yet. Clear skies here before dawn, let's hope they hang around for a while today!

Nice shot! I hope your actual seeing is what meteoblue says so you can utilise the large aperture regularly.

Re: March 3 2021 images. Playing with color.

They're good results given you're at the start of your imaging journey James.

The only thing I would suggest at this stage is take a step back, just concentrate on monochrome images and use ImPPG for this. When you have sharpening, gamma and levels mastered I would concentrate on colour then.

Re: March 3 2021 Observations

Seems to me you have raised the black point to increase contrast - you can see how it 'eats into' the limb, however you've not dragged the white point in - Pedros plage jump out because the levels are clipped (or very close to clipping).

Mark, what are you using instead of PIPP to prepare your videos for AS! ?
Nothing. I just run them straight through As3.

Nice record of the event Stu. I look forward to the one that gives us some visuals here in the UK this solar cycle.
