WL/CAH/HA imaging with my solar 228mm refractor

Post by sulcis2000 »

Hi guys

Yesterday I enjoyed with shooting all the great amazing prominence and sunspots in the three different wavelength.
Seeing was better then previous solar session of Saturday.

Solar refractor 228 F8 truss tube
Ioptron Cem120
Halfa: #Daystar Quark Chromosphere version + Basler aca 1920-155um (FL= 7750mm)
CaH: #Daystar Quark Calcium H-line + ASI290MM (FL=4.800mm) Aperture 150mm
WL: #Baaderplanetarium Herschel Wedge Cool Ceramic + Barlow Powermate 4X + ASI290MM (FL= 7.200mm)

Best regards

Ale

Superb collection in all 3 wavelengths. I am very impressed by the performance of your CaH Quark.

Alessandro,
Was the detached prom from today or yesterday? I didn't notice one this morning while observing. I know yesterday ( 9-12-21 ) had the remaining part of the large NE prom early before it got pulled back into the Sun.

Dear Alessandro,

Congratulations for the photos and the SPOD!
I keep being amazed by your photos, to the point that I would love to go to south Sardinia and see what the seeing conditions are over your place. ;-)
Seriously, this would be the best way to understand if the quality of your photos is due mostly to your excellent techniques and experience or both your skills and a very good seeing you may often have locally.

Are you shooting in early morning or in late afternoon?

I may send you a PM when I feel ready to formulate my questions in order to understand how you achieve your miracles!

Best wishes,
Alexandros

Dear Alexandros

I usually shot in early morning, from 9.00 A.M. to max 11.00 when the local seeing gradually gets worse (I shot from my terrace and so this one gets hot after fee hours from sunshine.
There is no secret. You need a large aperture, an high frame rate, a truss tube and a lot of patience waiting for the right moment for clicking start in firecapture.

Ciao

Ale
