Prom animation November 2nd

Post by ffellah » Sun Nov 03, 2019 7:29 pm

Hello everybody: yesterday was a beautiful sunny day but the sun is now low and seeing was good at the beginning of the morning but deteriorated substantially later on. The Jetstream was unfavorable (I am the red dot on the map). This shows 90 minutes of activity for what I thought was the main prominence in the sun. It is the first time I used the auto run feature of FC and I have to say it is excellent. Using the SM90 with the Hinode guider and a PG Flea 3 3.2 Mp camera, but the image is cropped to 1000px.

Hope you had a nice sunny day too !

Franco

Franco:
Anyway you had a good session.
At my place is pouring Volcano ashes since last night and it is really cloudy.
Popocatépetl (the Volcano) is probably festing the deaths day in México.
Hope you all have a good sunny day.
Eric.

Nice animation, Franco. A lucky gap in the Jetstream. :)

Lots of activity! I also like the little spurts which occur sporadically round the edge :bow :hamster:
