30 March 2024 AR3615 Ca K

Post by LeoD »

Hi all,

The solar season started later for me, both with weather and seeing. I saw a lot of fantastic catches of big spots and flares here on SC this year, and finally only at the end of March I have smth to share with you.
Missing all interesting of 3615, I got the last day of this mighty AR in CaK with a lot of limb activities.
Achro 120/1000, optimized for Ca, B-CCD, double stack Lunt 1800+600, NPZ 2x barlow, 462 camera.
thanks for looking

Leo

Thank you, cybermayberry and Mark, much appreciated!
I didn't find a differnce tilting or not, maybe bandwidth of standard Lunt filters is too wide. But one side of fov has always a bit less contrast and I can't get rid of it. When FD, one side is with brighter halo.
regards
Leo

You need to tilt the filter closest to the camera to throw the halo out of the fov.
