Ha Sun May 22, 2024

Post by ffellah »

Hello all SC friends: yesterday a brief session before work. I took out "old faithful" SolarMax 90mm SS stopped down to 70mm. I wanted to try something different, rather than a full disk or a closeup. This is a 4 image mosaic of the current active regions: I think I will try more of these. The camera was the Saturn M.

Thank you Warren, Paul and Mark: I like the Saturn camera a lot. I find the square format ideal for the sun: the higher resolution implies larger files and longer processing time, but it is all good. It has excellent contrast and speed.
