3-25-2020 Observations

Post by DeepSolar64 » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:56 pm

All,
This is all I got on a very calm sun today. Sky conditions are clear with fair seeing. Breezy.

Coronado SolarMax II 60 DS. 16x and 21.5x ( Ha )
One fairly easy filament seen to the north. One prominence visible with considerable difficulty. Otherwise only the mottling of the chromosphere is visible.

Orion 70mm Solar Telescope. 25x and 50x ( WL )
No detail at all except for fine granulation.

James

Hey James

Yeah, not much going on today. I had quite a bit of difficulty to get the proms to show up at all (seeing wasn't great either, but still).

On the upside, it can only get better :)

It was quiet today, there were proms but they were faint.

At least you finally had a clear day to observe, I managed to totally miss the prominences today, probably because my etalon was off band when I looked visually :(

Alexandra,

I could only barely see them. If I would have not known exactly where to look I would have not noticed it. I did have to play with the tuning wheel a bit.

Franco,

May you have sunny skies soon.
