H-alpha 2012-06-07 Mosaik & Timelapse


Recommended Posts


I finally had time to sit down & process the the 160gb (!) of data acquired over 2 weeks ago...

I decided it was time for a new mosaic , while learning to tune the three different levers & dials of the scope for dopplertuning, i managed to find a pretty good setting for the surface, so that was the idea of the whole mosaic, to show the surface as detailed as possible, that's why I maxed out the contrast & sharpness. So please, have a look in full size!

The mosaic consist of 12 different avi's, 6 for the surface & 6 for the proms. The avis was 2200frames each, I used 10-15% of the best frames in each. Right after finishing the mosaic, I decided to try making a timelapse of the huge liftoff prom, I set the capture to a 60sek/1800 frames avi every 2 minutes. A total of 72 frames, 2 hours & 24 minutes. Occasional thin clouds moved past, messing with the brightness & contrast now & then, but who cares, I'm still a beginner :) The timelapse is downsized 'cause of the humongus files generated by animated gif's, I need to learn how to make HD videos for youtube...

Excellent mosaic, the timelapse is the most spectacular I've seen. Who needs SOHO anyway? This is definitely going into my little folder with 3rd party "inspirational" pics.

Two things:

- what was the solar scope used?

- images to video: just get FFMPEG, it does it all
