Re: Quiet Disc Today | HA | Oct 28th

Hi Marty... The full disk is nice and sharp and the higher resolution images look good despite the seeing you had. These turned out quite well :bow All cloud the last few days, and woke to the first snow covered landscape today :shock: Hope for some sun on Tuesday if the forecast is half right. Brian

Re: Sun in CaK Lunt B600 + Omega filter

Hi Stu...

I hope you get more opportunity to compare the combinations!

Out of curiosity, is the Omega+Barlow installed before or after the B600 CaK module?

Re: 17th October WL granulation

Hi Robert...

Both images look great considering the low elevation of the sun :bow

The 3x is very sharp, but the 5x still looks very good. A 4x might have delivered a bit more resolution but still excellent results.
