Sun in CaK / White Light With ESAR152 - Six inch + Lunt CaK filter or Baader Wedge Uploaded 11/28/14 Daily Report For Monday, January 2nd, 2012

 Very poor weather this year has totally prevented any serious solar imaging until this morning. Seeing was 2/5 which is not great, but the granulation did resolve in manhy of these shots. Two sets are shown here, the first white light using a Baader 10nm Continuum filter and Baader Herschel wedge. This is in the green band.

The second set is with a 2.4nm wide Lunt B600 Calcium K filter and shows some of the amazing details at this wavelength.
