  1. Hi guys, I wanted to share with you a detail of an AR I captured with my modest setup some days ago. Nothing fancy or special, but it is the first time I have managed to get such level of detail, so I'm happy with it. Setup SW 114/900 Newton on EQ2, motor focusing Prestigio PWC2 webcam, IR-cut filter, Baader Astrosolar, Hyperion Zoom Barlow 2.25x Enjoy.
  2. The Sun was not exactly uninteresting on the 2nd of April. The images were taken with a Canon 1100D coupled to a Helios 200mm f5 Reflector stopped down to 40mm and using Badaar filter. 1/125sec exposure,100ISO and slightly tweaked using Faststone.
  3. Here's my take on today's white light disc. Flaring AR11748 is in u/left of disc...
  4. Here's my white light result from May 26th. Looks like another small spot rotating into view close to the eastern limb.
  5. First one this year! There have been brighter days but they have all occurred on weekdays when I am in the office all day. Still, the Sun is starting to get a bit higher in the sky so maybe a few more opportunities will arise. Here's my first WL of the year then. I shot Hydrogen Alpha and Ca-K data whilst I was out but the wind was hammering the scope as usual so not sure what if anything I will get from it all.
  6. AR 2454, 2456, 2457 Fujifilm X-T10 with XC50-230 zoom lens, baader solar filter On Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tziuriky/22779838797/in/dateposted-public/
  7. I've been taunted by almost complete cloud cover for 3 days solid and The Present Mrs Foster has had other things for me to do, plus the Olympics... Where does the time go? Anyhoo, it didn't look too clever this morning but after lunch it cleared up quite nicely, here's an almost spotless Sol in White light. 25% of 100 frames at 1/1000s ISO 100, cropped/aligned with Pipp, stacked & Sharpened in Registax and finished off with PS. I'm pleased with the clarity considering there's nowt to focus on.
  8. Seeing varied considerably across the panes for this one. Shouldn't complain really as at least I could see the Sun!!
  9. So, picked up a DSLR (1100D) a few weeks ago and had my first go at solar imaging today. Used the Live View zoom function to achieve focus, set the camera in manual at ISO 100 and 1/2000 second exposure. I used my usual white light observing setup, see signature. I then put the best single frame (had a few trial and error shots to get the right exposure) into Gimp, cropped and tweaked the levels and colour balance to give me something that I am reasonably happy with. Still lots to improve! I have never done any sort of image processing before and I am not completely convinced the image is properly focused. I do have some challenges, the SL80 isn't great for this as the focuser slips if I am not careful and the mount is not driven so I have to track the sun manually. Combine those two with the 30 mph gusts we are getting today and I suppose the image above is close to miraculous! Critique welcomed, as are suggestions for improvement.
  10. Todays quick snapshot of the Sun. I waited a long while for a gap in the clouds by which time the Sun was skimming the rooftops which didn't aid the seeing. 66mm ED Apo Baader Solar Film Baader Hyperion Zoom Sigma DP3M Single shot, processed in LR5 / ACDsee Pro 6 / Gimp I now have a simple 52mm - 43mm reducer ring to attach the camera to the Hyperion zoom. Again glimpses of detail but the conditions today were against me
  11. Hi all, Here are some solar shots from 18 April taken under reasonable conditions. Pete Lawrence
  12. It's been quite a while since I tried solar imaging, so this morning I decided to give it a go. Pulled out my little 90mm SW mak with Baader AstroSolar Safety Film and my trusty Sony SLT A77. Stacked 90 frames, dabbled a bit with wavelets and did the final processing in Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 where I added some false colour as well to make it look "better". Oh, the scope and camera was mounted on my Benro A4570T tripod/(TS) Triton geared AZ head.
  13. Here's a mosaic of the Sun in white light from May 11th. Large active region 11745 rotating into view over the eastern limb.
