Re: Lifting Prom

Hi Earl...

Nice shot of the prom, and I'd say a lucky chance to be able to set up and capture that before the clouds set in.

Re: Full disk renditions from this mornings session

Hi Chris...

The full disk images are top of the line. The details in the Ha are especially sharp...that AR is growing day by day, and it looks like there is some activity coming around the limb.

Thanks for sharing,

Re: First light-ES 80 mm triplet and Lunt Wedge

Hi Jim...

Great shot, and the rsolution is excellent considering the relatively short focal length. That TiO filter does a nice job too.

Looking forward to seeing more from this setup.

Re: SUN 20120210 WL & H-alpha with bad seeing (2/5)

Hi Pedro...

Those are a great set of images...period.

If that is bad seeing, what exactly do I have then...is there a negative side to the seeing scale ;)

Re: Early Morning Prom. Huge

Hi Fernando...

I believe we have a new AR on the limb that does not show well (under the prom), and it looks to me like the prom is reaching back over the limb...probably more hidden activity influencing this one.

I mistakenly labeled these images as Feb 9th....posted on the 9th, but actually imaged on the 8th.

I'm not sure how close the camera settings will compare between the DNK and Lumenera cameras, even if they have the same chip.
