AR2706 / 20-04-2018 - update

Post by PDB » Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:20 pm

Small image of AR2706 today.
Skywatcher 120 f/8.3 with the new Baader Diamond Steeltrach focuser mounted (still in manual focus) and a new 2" 35nm Baader H-Alfa filter.
(mounting the steeltrack was not that easy. Synta had painted the inside flange :mad: , so it did not realy fit. Some sandpaper was needed to clean the flange)

Anyway, here a quick result with the ASI102MM (with focal reducer) ROI to het 330 FPS. (seeing not so great)

Very nice!
Looks like our little AR is growing
The sky is gloriously clear here today...
and I am 500 miles from my telescope

Thanks Mark & Bruce.
I must be able to do better ... but the good weather seems to have vanished now. Also some surgery coming up probably end of next month, so I will be "out of order" for several weeks. :(

Regards,

Paul
