My virgin Ha full solar disk with Lunt LS60 SS Tilt Tuned and ASI178. Be gentle with me :D

Dust in the upper atmosphere did not help much, but for my first attempt ever, I am pretty happy. Have to try with my DS module next time!

Remember to get your Vitamin D!

Hi Nick! Great shots with that tilt tuned Lunt. My advice - sharpen at a much smaller radius size, you will preserve the finer details in the raw data. What software are you using?

That's a pretty nice start, Nick.

Curious to see what else you'll manage to pull out.

Nick, this is a fabulous first full disc and beautifully presented too :bow :hamster:
How do you sharpen after stacking? do you use ImPPG, this is a great tool for sharpening solar discs and you can get very fine control.

Thanks all!

Mark, noted re radius and Alexandra, I now use IMPPG.

Will post a couple of images from two days ago in a new topic - different processing!

Solar imaging is so much fun!!!
