Some solar details with new Quark 28.03.

Post by pupak »

Today the only task was to test the new Quark combo chromosphere.
The weather is terrible. Just a few pictures for the whole day.

I do not look at the sky with the eyes of an astronomer, but of a person looking for the beauty of nature.

Hi Pupak,

Is this the Apollo M-Max or equivalent ?
What about your refractor, is it an apochromatic refractor costing 7000 USD ?
Fantastic detail !!

I thank everyone for the positive responses.
I use Apollo M Max or Saturn M. They are excellent cameras. Sometimes I also use the Altair 183M in BIN 2-4, it gives excellent images, but unfortunately it does not work with Firecap, which bothers me.
The telescope is a high-quality achromat AR150/F6 individual. I also tested the LZOS 123/F6. The claim that it is useless to use expensive APO on the Sun, because the AR color defect does not apply here, is only half true. Cheap ARs obviously do not have such high-quality optics and their drawing is visibly worse. I mean Chinese AR 150/F8 etc. Quality APO will definitely give a better result.
These images are processed exclusively in PSP and its plugins. The basis for obtaining details is to remove noise, then the details can be extracted in Camera RAW. It's just about the sensitive setting of individual operations and experience. It is important to estimate the stacking. Sometimes it is better to compose fewer images, sometimes more. It depends on the noise level.
It's a bit of alchemy. :)
