Sol from the 9th of September 2018.

Post by eroel » Mon Sep 10, 2018 12:36 am

Hi:
Still we have a strong raining season, so everyday is cloudy, hazy and just for a few ocassions you can see the sun.
Today I had luck at around 10:30 am, so got some FD´s with the 102mm f/9 Meade with a CaK mod from a PST, and also some Ha FD´s with the Solarmax 90-DS.
Thanks for looking so many FD´s and best wishes to all,
Eric.

Nice discs Eric!

The proms on your CaK discs, are those proms captured with the CaK PST filter mod you're using? Or are those from HA? If they're from your PST CaK filter mod, I'd love to know more!

Very best,

Alexandra, Pedro and Marty, thank you for the comments.
Marty, the CaK prominences shown on all my CaK FD`s, are from the 102mm f/9 Meade refractor fitted with a PST CaK filter modification, plus a single Baader K line filter at the nose of the camera.
Best regards,
Eric.

Fantastic discs, Eric. CaK proms in your images are exceptionally well contrasted, the PST mod is a real winner. My proms through the Quark seem ghosts in comparison to yours.

I also use a Baader K-line filter + a Lunt 1200 CaK module and I never get high contrast proms like you do. The PST CaK mod works great

Raf, Pedro and Derek, Thanks.
here are two photos of my PST CaK mod, just an aluminium barrel where the PST filter is fitted, and an UV/IR IDAS filter in front.
On the back part the camera fits with a K line Baader filter screwed on the nose.
Have a good day,
Eric.
