Spicules and dark mottles in h alpha, June 28th

Post by LTHB » Sat Jun 29, 2019 11:43 pm

Finally an afternoon of blue skies, after weeks of milky haze and clouds, so an opportunity to try out a new filter and also a Photoshop tool I've never used before (following a hint I found in Alexandra‘s solar imaging tutorial), namely Shadows/Highlights.

Seeing was okay to nice, and after lots of fiddling I got one okay capture of spicules and dark mottles near the limb:

I hope for more blue skies!

A great couple of images Frank :bow :hamster: I am glad you found the shadows and highlights as it is great for bringing up the spicule layer and proms without destroying the surface features too much :)
