  1. i would not bother with double stacking such a small telescope with a second etalon, you are best to hold off and just save for a bigger scope. More aperture is more valuable than a double stack these days, because the double stack filters just are not made to the same standards they were 8 years ago when everyone was super buzzed about the h-alpha scopes. Double stack filters are more or less, "rejected" filters that are always off band.
  2. very cool, as long as it works and you get pictures out of it ; mission accomplished.
  3. still processing the high rez stuff, so until then enjoy this preview!
  4. I would like to opt a new classification, called "plage region" This area appears dull in h-alpha and a calcium filter is essential to see it resolved. Thus a new classification of surface detail should be encouraged for these plage areas.
  5. darker setting captured about 40 mins after the above image.
  6. very nice; calcium processing is interesting. Depending on exposure time and gamma settings you can capture three distinct; separate layers of the surface. I think its a bit different than offband tuning with h-alpha, because you dont actually have to detune your filter, and if you hit the right capture setting you start seeing flux tubes and islands of spicules. Same filter, vastly different appearance. Entirely based on capture settings. The entire surface has spicule islands on the right. The left it just looks like granulation.
  7. balloon.. way too big to be anything else, which makes it pretty close.
  8. good active region, bad atmosphere.
  9. Very nice, those flux tubes are wonderful!
  10. Right now there are new generation 3 sony sensors ready to be incorporated ; they are super speed with excess of 200 frames per second , with greater than 20megapixel high resolution . Most computer owners could not fit the bandwidth load of the data coming out that fast.
  11. If you hold the shift button on your keyboard; and press print screen button on your keyboard; You can then open up a paint app and paste a screen shot from the clip board (ctrl+V)
  12. Very nice; and do not give up. Just keep the camera ready for rolling! I think i will dig out my pst mod and see how that looks This region is very good at making puppies;
  13. So i have confirmed that I am the first amateur in the world to image flux tubes in calcium light. accurate pointers added to the first image, this was not the first time I have captured these; But it is the first time I have looked into this indepth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flux_tube here are my previous images recorded on November 5th 2020, this was the first time i ever captured flux tube's, and I had no idea I was the first amateur to image these in calcium light. Captured with an explore scie
  14. accurate arrows pointing near the tubes. (there are more areas, but not a whole lot of room for arrows.)
  15. I have just confirmed that i have captured Flux tubes, and I am the first amateur to record them on images with a calcium filter! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flux_tube The first time i ever imaged flux tube's was on November 5th 2020, without knowing I was the first amateur to ever image these in calcium light. The first was very high resolution , and this example is very remarkable.
