Aug, 9th and 11th sun fun

Post by Astrophil » Mon Aug 12, 2019 3:32 am

I've been testing out a new scope the last few days but with such little solar activity there is not much to see. So, to stay enthusiastic, I turned to some unconventional processing just for fun.
The first inverted image is from August 9th showing Pedro's dinosaur prom. The second is a composite of disk and prom images from the 11th.

Thanks!
The LS80 has a nice even field in single stack mode. Sure makes processing FDs easier. So far it seems like a very good scope.
A peach for certain, Alexandra
