Remarkable days of the Cycle-24.

Post by Valery » Mon Nov 25, 2019 2:39 am

Hi all,

Browsing my deep archives of the Cycle-24 images I stopped at the Oct.22 2014 folder. It contains several remarcable images of the Great Solar Spot 2014. It was easily visible by a naked eye.

Here is the images of this spot as it was seen in CaK and Ha bands.

Imaging setup: ARIES 2 bands full size DERF, 150mm CR-6 refractor, CaK filter and Ha etalon, PGR Flea-3 ICX445 camera.
For CaK image the scope was stopped to 111mm.

FireCapture for image recording and AsatraImage 3.0 Pro + CS6 for image processing.

Right click on the images to see them in a full resolution.

Really excellent images Valery! Let's hope get some similar size spots in this next solar cycle.

Very nice indeed, Valery. I can’t wait for these days to return.

Thanks for reminding us of the good times.

A large aperture H-a telescope still can show (in details!) a lot of interesting things - prominences, spiculaes, dark filaments, small active areas and rapid changes in them all. My pain is mostly due the winter (little sun and a lot of cloudy weather) not that the solar activity is low.
