  1. Hi, I would like to share with you an article written by me on high-resolution solar imaging in different wavelengths. Glad that the European Physics Journal (EPJ) Web of Conferences published it. You can read it at: https://www.epj-conferences.org/articles/epjconf/abs/2020/16/epjconf_seaan2020_01002/epjconf_seaan2020_01002.html You can see the different layers of the Sun in high-resolution images using different setups. Best regards. Alfred
  2. After the break to the mountain which I have dedicated to elaborate a bit of the material filed in time, I can finally go back to photograph. 22th morning, the sky would be especially transparent and clean, thanks to the storm of the night and although the meteo told about terrible seeing I wanted to try anyway due to the presence of some beautiful formations on the Sun. To my surprise the turbulence was almost absent at the begining, and I could capture sequence of images tho assemble the mosaics, but these are enough to exhaust the lucky seeing, and when I was setting the camera for the timelapse I already saw the first signs of deterioration which are then fulfilled during the shooting sequence. I tried to continue anyway stopping after just over an hour, even after a couple of hours I didn't see any improvements so I decided to dismantle everything and see what I could pull out of the collected material. In fact, this time, since next to one of the brightest prominences were visible a few spots and filaments, I wanted to try a totally different settings that allowed me to capture both the prominence that the details on the disk, which is always tricky with narrow filters. If it will happen again I'll have to keep exposure times longer to have more data on the weak details; in post processing then I had to study a totally different approach and I have had to duplicate each frame in order to be treated differently the disk and prominence starting from the same shoot. A faster method would be to work on shadows and light but noticing a loss of some points on the histogram I have taken the long way and hardworking. Since then the highly variable seeing I had to change the stacking and the final processing to try to normalize the level of detail as much as possible, I must admit that it was a work particularly long, because I has precluded the use of certain macros that usually use. Although at the end of the capture there weren't any cataclysmic events the level of detail at full resolution is good and if you focus on portions of the video and not only to the overview, you can see micro movements and evolutions. In particular I'm curious about the migration of certain points of greatest intensity next the main spot group NOAA 1820 more visible in the negative version, I usually think about Ellerman bombs but this ones were moving from the umbra and follow the filament/spicules and makes me wonder if by chance it is not a case of those phenomena recently discovered by UCLan university and still under study, in which they occur condensations of energy along the magnetic field of the spicule / filaments which radiate from sunspots by traveling in their length. Unfortunately the compression of Youtube has mixed some of the details but I hope you will enjoy it anyway. Youtube Channel
  3. I just finished to work on the data of 2 weeks ago. The animation represent a close up portion of the Sun of 4 May. Images taken with a 100 ed refractor using a Daystar h-alpha filter at a focal of 2200mm, I reduced the focal do to a terrible seeing. I decided to follow for a couple of hours the NOAA 1734 zone, the bigger one of the week with the hope to catch a big X flares like the yeasterday one. Even if the seeing and the video compression had blured alot of details, the filaments and spicules movements are evident, also a couple of mini flares are visible during the time-lapse. Hope in bigger one next time. The mosaic instead was captured the last weekend at the same focal of 2200, 6 images at different exposure for disc and proms (click on it for the zoom). I also captured a serie of movies to assemble a time-lapse of the prominence, but still on working.
  4. An other week is past and the Sun has been more quiet then in the first video but I found few beautifull events I hope you will like. Three linked flares, a persistent tornado, few explosion and huge prominence and filaments liftoff.
  5. Hi all, Here are a couple of results from Saturday, July 20th. Amazingly complex and beautiful prominence on show...
