First real CaK prom!

Post by Merlin66 » Mon Sep 07, 2020 5:39 am

Imaging on the 6th Sept after days of cloud and wind....
I've seen "shadows" of possible proms with my DIY CaK filter - but today there was no ambiguity!
Definitely a CaK prom.

Superb......... I was smiling for hours after capturing my first CaK prom and it must feel even better with a DIY system.

Great shots, Ken. Nicely done! :D

I've been holding off setting up a CaK rig, but you may have inspired me now.

Thanks for the shares.

Very nicely done, Ken. CaK proms can be really tricky, as we know, unless you’re Eric, of course. :)
