AR2794 WL 22/12/2020

Post by Martin_S » Tue Dec 22, 2020 3:13 am

Here's my first capture of AR2794, taken on a choppy 28°C day in Brisbane.
I used a ND3.8 full aperture filter on my MAK 180 with a Solar continuum filter and IRcut filter with MY ASI120mm
Camera.

Very nice Martin. I can see some of the fine radial detail in the spot's penumbra in your images. I can usually pick out detail such as this only in really good seeing which has been rare lately.

:bow A really beautiful image with wonderfully fine detail. :bow

I noticed the near vertical pointing altitude on the telescope.
Then I saw the round shadow on the ground.
Has Australia been moved nearer to the Equator? :cool:

Thank you all for your feedback, we are back to cloudy hazy skies in Brisbane. Hopefully everyone will get a chance to see this AR and the two small spots that are rounding the limb right now.
