Sun 28th June

Another 'rare' beautiful blue sky day here and a little time on my scopes to capture the lovely prom in Ha and even (a rarity for me) in CaK.

Ha Proms:

This is a combo shot disc and proms taken separately and merged together.

CaK discs and prom are absolutely fantastic. May you remind me of your setup for the last two images ?

Many thanks,Raf,

I used the following: Tecnosky 125mm, Lunt B600 CaK plus Baader K-line and Omega CaK with my acA1920-155um (IMX174 sensor) and an APM 2.7x Barlow:

Image processing:

Hope this helps.

Wow!! these are superb Stuart, the proms are incredible and very sharp :bow :bow I wonder if that big bit of plage is the big AR still doing the rounds from April? I have forgotten how many times round now.
My Lunt CaK is back, I found it on the doorstep when I got home Sunday morning, glad it wasn't nicked. They obviously ignored the advice to return it to the hubby's work. I think from looking at the delivery note it is a brand new replacement from Lunt but as it was packed in the same box and packaging as I sent it in and it has no serial number it is impossible to say. I wonder why these modules never come in a box? When I ordered it originally it came in a jiffy bag, weird for a expensive optical device ;) I just need some sunshine now, it was cloudy all day yesterday and I was sleep deprived too.

Many thanks, Alexandra. I was really pleasantly surprised that the CaK proms came out okay. I usually have real problems imaging proms at this wavelength.
Good to hear that your Lunt CaK module is back (or its replacement). Maybe we’ll get a chance to compare again on the 28th? Hopefully it has been fixed if it is the same one.
