Great Sunspot in AR2738 in High Res | HA & WL | April 12th 2019

Post by MalVeauX » Fri Apr 12, 2019 7:13 pm

Hey all,

I was greeted with good seeing and fairly clear skies this morning, so I was able to use the full aperture and I feel very close to the resolution potential of this solar scope finally as my pre-summer seeing is rolling in here in Florida. AR2738 is a wonderful spot with lots of intricate small details in the plage areas, tiny filaments, and wonderful "gills" around the umbra. Presented in hydrogen alpha and white light.
