Nov 8th - Multi Spectrum

Post by MapleRidge » Tue Nov 10, 2020 3:49 am

Hello everyone...

Sunday offered an clear sky that lasted through the day and into the night, so no limits from clouds on the solar captures unlike the day before. Seeing was better than average too, which helped to pull more details out of the higher resolution images. It was also a very nice day at the scope with temps pushing 20C near noon :o

The first images are the full disks...starting with Ha through the LS80T/LS75FHa/B1800Ha solar scope and ASI174MM camera:

The full disk WL and CaK images were taken through the Stellarvue 110 with a Lunt Solar Wedge/Baader Continuum Filter for the WL and a modified Lunt Solar Wedge/B1800CaK/Baader K-Line filter with the ASI1600MM camera:

I added the 5x Powermate ahead of the camera for these high res image of AR2781 using the same filters as above:

AR2781 was still the prime target, and was imaged through the modded CR-150/DSII/B1800Ha + 2.7x Telecentric and ASI174MM for this multi frame mosaic:

AR2780 still deserved an image too ;)

Besides these two formal AR's, I found a couple areas that showed some sign of activity/disturbance as well on the SW limb:

The proms were numerous but small and after capturing the disk details I grabbed these limb images with the proms:

The final images were through the modded scope, but with the 5x Powermate used to image the big AR:

This is all I have processed so far, with multiple sets taken through the C9.25 Edge and Daystar Quantum (0.45A(), but the seeing was not as good as earlier in the morning.I will post any that I can process in the next day or so.

As always, questions and comments are always welcome!

Brian, you are an ace at this. I especially like your close up images. CaK shows wonderful detail as does your WL images. Ha did wonderful too! I love the eastern limb shot with those proms. Those would be a challenge visually.

Awesome images, Brian. Looks like you had a superb session across the spectrum and at all image scales. Lots of lovely details in those closeup views.

Very nice.
