First time i have ever seen this recorded in calcium light, and luckily I am the first person to image it! If you can find it anywhere else, please let me know.
I have monitored solar eruptions for 20 years, you see this with hydrogen alpha regularly; and I am very confident when i say that i am the first amateur to ever record this.
Too bad i was not imaging in high res, this would have been a textbook class capture..
So ... I've been playing peek a boo with the moon this morning as I found there was a possibility of it being visible in the lovely bits of blue morning sky .... and it was... periodically But then found I had no idea what my camera settings ought to be for daylight shots once i'd got myself setup on my scope..😂
Can someone give me some pointers? Pleasey 🤩
I'm using Backyard nikon on my laptop
OK I had a bit of (non moon ) blue sky to play with so I tried to work it out for myself. The attached photo is of what I THINK is going to be getting something useful when/if the moon comes back from its hiding place.. So the settings were Shutter 1/1600, Aperture f14, ISO 1600... To my untrained eye that looks to be a reasonable starting place.. but
What do you think?
Is this me being on the right track ?🤔
I've saved these settings in the app to recall them next the moon pops up in daylight (maybe tomoz)
Would you believe there's a whole window full of blue sky -just where the moon isn't... Where the moon is is just a white out of bulbous spoil sports..😤 - I bet you would believe it!🤣
