Today's Prominences & Active Region | HA | Nov 3rd 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Sat Nov 03, 2018 8:28 pm

Heya,

It's rained and been cloudy for days, but today around noon it cleared up. Usually my seeing is really bad this late in the day. I chanced it anyways. Captured today's fair prominences on the limb and an undesignated small active region in high resolution. I accidentally captured an occulting jet passing through the disc with the PST looking at full disc prominences too.

150mm F8 Refractor > 150mm Daystar ERF > Baader UV/IR > Quark > ASI174MM
PST > 1.5x Barlow > ASI174MM

I am just curious if you tilt the objective erf at all, i am noticing a haze around your latest prominence captures since you added that daystar erf , it seems they were not there so much prior to its install? I wonder if you have a double image somewhere?

I always look forward to your to captures. I never have the time anymore :(

Hi Marty...

Nice work and the longer focal lengths show their ability to find features on the relatively featureless disk. Nice work :bow

Thanks all :bow

Woke up to total cloud cover this morning, so hopefully someone else is spying on that little AR to see if it grows a wee bit.

I tilt it a bit. No reflections. The haze is from the maximized gamma and histogram stretch through a single stack. These proms are very feint and I push the exposure, and then in processing push it there too after stacking. I have the same on all proms even on smaller instruments and without the daystar ERF. It's a matter of processing it out. I generally leave the haze when it's too difficult to remove without it looking completely unnatural and overly processed sometimes.

Fantastic images Marty and a well deserved SPOD :hamster: I enjoyed the jet transit, they always startle you when imaging, then make you smile :)
Nice to see the little trainee too :bow

Very nice images, Marty. The Earth scale really sets things in context.

Thanks all, :bow :bow

I hope my next day off the active region is still there, it seems to have grown a wee bit.

Very best,
