May 10th Spots

Post by Astrophil » Sat May 11, 2019 1:08 am

Hi All,
A nice day for solar imaging, only a few clouds and a light breeze. The Quantum Six was the scope of choice today. First off are portraits of the active regions then a group shot. Finally, not to the waste time while the etalon heated up, AR12741 without it's chromosphere cover.

Thanks for the nice comments.
Oops, I mislabeled the images. They were taken with a Quantum Six telescope not an Questar. There is no Questar 6.

Thank you Alexandra, I have been trying to follow your suggestions. Now if I could narrow the bandwidth of the filter they would be better.
