My Ha Solar 1st June 2013


Recommended Posts

Just a few pics from Saturday 1st June. Quite a decent day for solar imaging although the sun wasn't ablaze with features and the proms were generally small. The seeing was reasonable but it was a bit breezy which makes the big girl wobble a bit. Anyway it gave me a good oportunity to observe, image and test out various scope configurations. On the imaging side I started off with full disc pics with the LS60T.

Here is a ful disc using a reducer to get the whole disc in one shot.

And here is a full disc made with a 2 panel mosaic using the LS60T, no reducer.

Now with the next couple of pics I messed around with powemates and barlows and used my Lunt/C6-R solar modded scope to see what the big girl can do. I also tried to add a pst into the mix to see if I could get a double stack configuration, but for imaging it was not successful. Needs more testing on that one. I can't remember eactly what I used for thes pics coz I didn't make notes but judging by the scale, I would say the last one would have to be the Lunt monster.

All very good Allan, especially the two pane mosaic, you can't see the joins. I like the Luntmonster pic at the end as well. No sun here yesterday until late evening.

      Solar Setup for sale

      I have put this on sale twice but had changed my mind both times, but think I can finally let this go:
      Entire solar setup including:
      Quark Chromosphere with power cable
      Skywatcher ST102 with skywatcher autofocuser and Hitech Astro DC focuser controller- This makes fine focusing a breeze as you can focus right from the laptop screen covered with dark cloth without going to the telescope.
      Baader UV/iR rejection filter 2”
      Rowan astronomy tilt adapter to take care of Newton rings
      Relevation astro 2” extender for straight through imaging
      £1100 cash or bank transfer or paypal with fee(I had previously listed this for £1200). Pickup from London
      The quark is good for imaging. Images have been published in Sky at Night, once in the magazine and once on the website.
      Sample images attached. Setup shows entire setup (camera and mount not for sale)
      Quark and accessories- £900
      Scope with autofocuser and Hitec Astro DC focus- £175

      I currently have a Canon T6 with a Opteka 500mm f8 lens ($87) that I use for lunar and solar photography. I recently purchased a full frame Canon EOS R and am thinking about getting a 800mm f11 Canon RF lens ($899). Will the quality on the new canon lens be significantly better than my Opteka lens? Is it worth the upgrade? Also, should I use my new full frame or my crop sensor (1.6 factor) to shoot? I want to get the best quality possible.

      Selling the Astronomik 12nm clip in Ha filter for 120€. Bought it for 270 usd including vat, customs and shipping so it's a really good price.

      The filter is still in excellent condition, used only twice. No fingerprints, no scratches not even dust (image attached).

      I will also handle the shipping through my post office without cost. If another shipping method is requested, then we'll have to to discuss the price.

      Contact me if interested.

      Clear Skies,
      Anthony

      Hello,
      I'm selling these 2 filters since I'm getting a mono astro cam. The filters are barely used and in perfect condition, no scratches, no fingerprints, not even dust. They are both amazing filters, probably the best investment I've made. I've attached some images
      taken with these filters, using a 100$ celestron newtonian, a 250$ Canon 500D and the infamous AVX. Also attached are images of the filters showing their perfect condition.

      Original price including VAT is 155 Euros (around USD 182). I got it for around USD230 including VAT, shipping and custom taxes.
      Selling for USD 100.
      Astronomik Ha 12nm Canon Clip in Filter: https://www.astronomik.com/en/clip-filter/clip-filter-canon-aps-c/clip-filter-eos-mit-astronomik-h-alpha-ccd-12nm.html

      I am willing to ship them on my own expense using LibanPost (from Lebanon). Shipping might take time; if you would like to use some other shipment method please contact me to discuss the price. 
      Feel free to buy one or both together.
      Let me know if you have any questions.

      Anthony
