start with the full disk Halpha shot. there are quite a few very
nice areas now on the disk.
prom shot is here. To take this, I change the gamma from 40 to
150 and expose much longer to get the dim proms.
3x barlow shots now. This has to be one of the most interesting
areas on the disk Ive seen in months!
smaller group on the limb.
at the filaments in this behemoth!
spot here, but a contorted region of magnetic flux.
for some 3x prom shots. Again, seeing was so-so.
shot of three:
one looks like a wave breaking:
now for some very special shots. This is a shot of one of the
active regions in the Red Wing of Halpha. Look at those tiny
white points around the spot, those are Ellerman bombs. (microflares)
one wasnt so bad either, and had a few too:
now for some shots with the 10 inch. When I finished shooting
the Sun, I set the circles on the suns coordinates. Then panned
over to Arcturus, a bright first magnitude star. This is the
shot with the DBK41 camera, a color camera with a 1290 x 960
chip. Gives about half a degree with the 10 inch.
dialed up Mercury, very close to the sun and at an 80 percent
phase. This is prime focus.
I popped in the IR pass filter and 2.5x barlow for this close
up. This camera passes IR up to 1 micron, so its great for all
types of imaging. I got this camera primarly for night imaging
of planets and spectroscopy.
