Small SS (19/07/2016)


Date of image 19/07/2016

Equipment: SW Skymax 150 (f12) at prime focus. The telescope was mounted on an EQ5 pro. Camera: Canon 550D in 640x480 movie crop mode set at 1/1000s exposure ISO400, the frame rate was 60fps. 

The total movie duration was about 5 minutes. The weather was great for solar imaging. The best 25% of frames were selected and decompressed by Pipp, Stacking and editing was done with RegiStax 6. I used about 15 alignment points.

Some first comments: The telescope was tracking well, I tried to keep the target in the frame for the entire movie exposure. Focusing was done by trial and error (by slowly tweaking the focus and watching 15 seconds of live view).
