Hi Valery,

Your C11 captures are fantastic. Inspire me to do better in solar imaging....

Looking forward to seeing your C14 captures too.

Hi Alexandra,

Amazing!! Thanks for sharing the outcome of your experiment.

Hi Derek, Rainer, Franco, Eric and Mark,

Thanks for your kind comments. There were no chances for imaging since then. The following are some HA close-up taken on the same day:

H-Alpha Images on a quiet Sun (Singapore)

28Apr18 was another poor day for solar imaging.

Hi Alfred,

The etalon in your LS50 scope is excellent! Good high res image with it!

Valery
Yes, it is a good etalon limited by seeing condition and my pp skills :)

]In contrast the images from the 150mm Celestron OMNI XLT refractor + ARIES D-ERF + Lunt 50 + ASI174 produce alot more details. This confirms that the PST Etalon belongs to the category of 80% fair quality. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-OK1QwHwzWZM/WtnX-9-_snI/AAAAAAAAask/3JkJD8FOFrAMZdMDbkslBs6i8L1h5R...

Re: 17Apr18 - ARIES D-ERF on C8 + PST Etalon Images

Thanks Mark, Stu and Brian for your comments. From a few imaging sessions, I have concluded that this is the best etalon (out of the 5 that I have). However it is not able to deliver the high resolution I am looking for. I will continue to use it to find the best that it can deliver.

Re: 17Apr18 - ARIES D-ERF on C8 + PST Etalon Images

The best F/D (on the camera chip) for IMX174 is about F/18-22. No necessity to go slower - you will not win in the detalization and sure will loss in ability to do a high resolution imaging with short exposures. Hi Valery, I have tried imaging with longer exposure and confirmed that it doesn't help...

Hi Alfred: I like #3 the most, seems to be the sharpest. This etalon seems to be pretty good. Franco Thanks Franco. I went back to look at the images captured with my first PST etalon. It may be better than this one. Unfortunately weather doesn't permit imaging today. For the #3, my settings are - ...

Nice work, Alfred. This is actually a good reference image for when I try a close-up with my PST etalon.

Hi Franco,

More images are on the way. I did some more imaging and will be posting them soon.
