Sun on 24th, Nov, 2021, ES127+Quark+Apollo-M MAX cam, fair seeing

Post by MoonPrince »

Very clear sky today, Seeing looks fair for imaging. Looking around of the edge of the Sun, I found that a lot of perminences. That would be very lucky to shot so many perminence in one day. I took about 7 different area. And use a reverse pattern in post-processing.

This camera has a tilt plate on it, only 2mm tilt will be able to eliminate newton ring.

For better result, I still recommend to take flat frame (I record 500 frames make a master flat) . After flat calibration in Autostakkert, all parts will have same brightness. That would be very easy for post-processing.

Oh, I can see very sharp preview in Sharpcap, I think this camera works perfect with quark, very high SNR.

Thanks, Franco. I checked thoes image on the screen in my home, looks a little dim. I just redo some processing and upload again. Looks like the screen in my office is too colorful.

Lovely images. Really nicely done. As has been said, it looks like you have a good Quark there.
