More October 10th Proms

Post by MapleRidge » Thu Oct 11, 2018 1:01 am

Hi everyone...

I too was out for a short session over lunch today and captured a few full disk and the main prom on the western limb that showed a lot of details. The images below are disk/limb composites taken with the LS75 etalon on my Williams Optic 72mm, f6 APO and B1200 blocker. The first is prime focus and the second used a 1.33x barlow threaded into the camera nose piece to bump up the focal length:

The ZWO 174 camera was then set up on the newly re-modded CR-150/LS80T+DSII etalon/B1800Ha double stack scope. This needs some work on alignment of the elements, but I did manage to get a shot of a small region that was showing some activity and the main prominence:

That's it for this session...hope to get some more sunny days and some free time to set up the modded scope a bit better.

Good to see you getting some Sun Brian. Down here I am trying to get around all my hives with swarming like I haven’t seen in my lifetime.
