Sol from the 24th of October 2019.

Post by eroel » Sat Oct 26, 2019 3:03 am

Hi:
The 24th I had chance to take a few shots, it was hazy and cloudy and as usual it later rained.
Used the 102mm f/9 Meade refractor with a CaK PSTmod for one set and the Solarmax 90-DS for the 2 other Ha sets.
Thanks for looking, wish you all a nice and sunny weekend.
Eric.

Thanks for your comments guys, much appreciated.
Franco, it was hazy, as you can see from the input level of the SSM, I have it calibrated with clear skies at a bit over 0.8 and it showed around 0.7 with a weavy line from 13-42-02 to 14-42-57. (clouds passing by)
Best regards,
Eric.

Very crisp shots Eric, the CaK full disc is super although I don't think we have seen such a quiet CaK for such a long time

Alexandra and Martin, thank you for commenting.
Alexandra, yes the CaK Surface is very quiet, here is the same "Surface" image with another workflow that I use.
Best regards,
Eric.
