Start with the SV80s wide angle and some close ups. This scope
sits highest on the mount when pointed east at sunrise, so gets
first grab at the sun while the other scopes are still in shadow
from the nearby observatory wall. All shots DMK51.
Disk - Baader Wedge, Continuum + IR, prime focus at f/6:
While the sunspot AR1450 can be seen on the right (west) limb
here, just to its left were a small group of pores and faculae.
with the SV80 and 5x televue powermate barlow we start to zoom
in on the group of pores:
small group of pores and faculae on the eastern limb as well:
Im moving onto the AR152 white light shots. Initially, I stopped
down to 80mm to test the waters on the seeing. Here with the
2.5x televue barlow on AR1450 itself. Look at the beautiful chain
of faculae extending upwards from the spot. The supergranulation
cell outlines can be seen clearly.:
nice details can now be seen in this set of 5x powermate images,
and faculae on eastern limb (oncoming)
very center of the Sun - the Granulation is very evident. Even
with this 4 minute integration time, we can still see the polygonal
outlines of the graunules.
we move onto the Calcium
images. This is with the SV80, and Lunt B600 at prime focus:
with the 2.5x barlow, look how the chromospheric network extends
upward from AR1450 and connects it with the group of pores!
we go for the Hydrogen
with the Lunt LS100. I can just get the full disk when I use
the Antares .5x focal reducer here:
the Proms image added to the background. AR1450 is flaring here.
This lasted around 10 minutes:
with the 2.5x televue powermate, I can bring in the finest details:
