Hola Eric,

Great images. You must have s custom made filter :-) in order to drill a hole in the clouds

I’m always envious of your CaK FDs with proms, Eric. Very nicely done, even when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Rainer, Stu, Jochen, Maurits, Salvo and Brian, thanks for the kind comments.
Rainer, yes it is the new "no cloud" filter, I am working now in the "no rain" filter, good for rainy days. :D :D
Stu, I made my CaK filter from a PST Coronado etalon, and changed the Baader K-Line filter that I used at the nose of the camera for the Venus Baader one, it is a 300nm to 400nm filter with a peak transmission of 80%, that helped imaging some prominences in CaK.
Best wishes to all,
Eric.

Beautiful images, Eric. I regularly use my Baader U-filter for imaging Venus but I never considered it for solar imaging, I'll try, thanks for your suggestion.
