is a movie lasting 3 seconds with the refractor and 5x powermate.
The atmosphere is VERY unstable!
start with the prime focus shot. I can only get about 1/4 the
sun in with one shot, but all the sunspots are seen hereanyway.
Besides the new one to the right of center, look on the lower
right on the limb - that is the former naked eye sunspot now
moving off the limb. It is much smaller now, but may return in
two weeks on the other limb!
Calcium light, the seeing is really bad but you can see the same
view as above at this more revealing wavelength.
are the prom views of the same limb, not much going on over the
other limb has some white areas over the disk, but nothing significant
5x Powermate shots in white light. A Powrmate is like a barlow,
but projects a more useful light cone out the back which works
better with filters. This is shot in green light, with a 520nm
filter and a band pass of 10nm. The color yellow here is added
later for effect. White suns are boring...
other sunspot group. Granulation is barely recorded!
of the other limbs show proms in Calcium K light. A faint one
to the lower right here.
nice arching prom on the other limb. Remember, Cak proms are
very faint, and always look different than what you see in hydrogen
