Single frame demonstration of the skybender, tilt tuning through different calcium layers using the chroma 393.44 filter.

It can produce red wing, center band, and blue wing images.

very dirty meade 90mm x 800mm / basler 1300-30gm / 17 year old windows xp computer.

zero processing, 10 single frames

That's really cool how the faculae just pop out when you're on-band!

Very best,
