  1. this was 50 minutes of recording, 2000 frame video captures were taken at 0 second delay intervals. Each 2000 frame video file is 15 seconds long, and i only keep about 100 of the frames per video.
  2. I will have a look around. It would have to be a mass file editing software because doing this one frame at a time would hurt I know photoshop can do it automatically, but i cannot justify paying X dollars a month to use a software in what most consider "play time." No photo is worth a monthly fee unless you are getting paid hourly to edit them
  3. as seen in calcium; imaging conditions were the worst kind of poo today. fighting heavy wind and heavy haze. Glad i at least got to grab this;
  4. Most are familiar with the continuum white light granulation, K-grains are similar . The image goes dark because a thick haze appeared in the sky mid session preventing any further imaging. different process.
  5. I use a Skybender to tilt my calcium filters until the prominences show up https://solarchatforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=24440
  6. thanks guys. Having a bit of a light leak issue on my filter housing, when i figure out how to fix that i should be able to remove that nasty glare/overcast in the center.
  7. sharpcap costs money and is limited if you do not pay., firecapture is free and has no limits, you can also use it to run multiple cameras simultaneously. It all boils down to personal taste, processing is sorta the same. Everyone has their own methods, but stacking is typically an industrial standard method. There is just about only one proper way to do this. Those square patterns will not go away, it is from your camera; Several ASI brand cameras just do not work for solar imaging.
  8. Okay, you are getting better results now. First and foremost, download firecapture and ditch the asi studio program you are using. You want your video to be recording in .SER format and nothing else. .avi causes issues. Secondly, you should be using the lowest exposure time possible with moderate gain, this is how you increase your frames per second. This is different for every camera so i cannot suggest a setting for your current setup. What you see on the screen, in real time is what you will see on the captured file; You can always fix it up a bit in
  9. Shut off planet mode , turn on surface mode. enable crop mode. hold alt and click on the first vertical line in your quality graph, and change stack size to 8%. tick the "sharpened button" then 65% blend in raw. Change the AP size to 104, since you have little to no surface detail on your color camera you need to make the align points bigger. If your video is very shakey, download PIPP, and try to stabalize the video and resave it to .ser format before running it into autostakkert. (use the prominence as your stabalization anchor)
  10. explore scientific 127mm x 1200mm , meade 2x telenegative barlow, basler 1920-155um camera. Apollo Lasky filters in a Skybender
  11. full length, sized down to 30mb.
  12. 163mb full size full size file.
  13. Solar projection is rather amazing, when i was 13 years old ; i randomly stumbled upon this with my very first telescope; a meade 4500 reflector scope. It actually completely changed my life, as this was the first time i had ever used a telescope; i literally saw a burning asteroid , comet, or other space debris with fumes and ejecta coming off while it transited the sun on the paper. I remember it like it was yesterday. Literally had vapor trails ejecting out of it like an aircraft engine would, except it was not an airplane. Never saw anything like it ever again sinc
  14. I did not assume you were using the SCT. For that you are going to need a front mounted energy rejection filter. Astrofilm is great, but not for what i am doing. Check out the baader planetarium Tri-color sct solar scope. Thats what you need, or something similar. You could in theory make this yourself with an old surplus laser mirrors however if you manage to find one that is 205mm.. They do exist and this is exactly what a dielectric filter is. That 90mm refractor you have will outperform the SCT scope with calcium 393nm wavelength however, SCT telescopes are
  15. If you place any filter about 100mm away from your solar focal point, at a tilt all the hot stuff goes into the metal baffle of your telescope. The telescope itself functions as a heatsink for the reflections. Typically you would use a IR/UV cut filter, but any filter works depending what you are trying to image. I usually just mount them to the last baffle in my telescope and give it a slight push to tilt it.
  16. Here is a link to the full frame video on flickr , it is 150mb. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51022577596_e47c788509_o.gif
  17. Explore scientific firstlight 127mm x 1200m + meade 2x barlow + custom infrared blocking double convex with 100mm focal length (my own design) , the filter set is a Skybender with 3 custom calcium filters (my own invention). Camera is a basler aca1920-155um. Here is some information about the Apollo Skybender; https://solarchatforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=24440 thanks for looking
  18. I was very pleased to have captured this. Like a whale breaching the surface of an ocean this sunspot floated to the surface for a short breath of life ; awake for just 20 minutes- it decided to fall back asleep under the ocean of boiling ionized calcium plasma- Thanks for looking!
