Plasma turbulence inside huge solar prominence

Recommended Posts

The last weekend I should have not use the telescope, I was sick at home but when I saw this big prominence online I decided to collect my last energy and try.

The prominence has few turbulent evolutions and seem to start a detaching movement instead it stay there twisting on itself.

This time I presented the timelapse in 4 different color, every personal taste should be pleased.

Comments and questions are welcome, and if you enjoyed the movie visit my video channel. :grin:

      Hi! 
      Newby here...
      What's the best software to do solar tracking and imaging on a Raspberry Pi (Astroberry)?
       
      I have been learning how to use Kstars/Ekos/INDI and it's working pretty well at night, but since now the nights are super short and the sun is more "exposed" I'm also trying to do solar imaging. 
      Astroberry oacapture, but how can I control the mount to perform solar tracking? Normaly I use EKOS for this, but then I can't use it with solar film capture. 
       
      Please let me know which software you use to connect the mount, focuser and camera (QHY-II-5L-C). It's ok to control the mount and focuser in a separate software, but using two separate INDI sessions seems to crash it. Advice and recommendations are welcome! 
       
      Thanks & Clear skies!

      Managed to get some solar observing in this week, trying to get back into it after quite a break. Having been away some time I'm definitely out of practice., so I'm trying to record my amateur attempts and publicly shame myself on YouTube so I can learn from them as I go along.
      Also need a tracking mount, its hard trying to do manually and focus at the same time. I'm in absolute awe of some of the stuff you lot produce, absolutely fantastic. This footage was from Wednesday 15th April 2020, very different compared to April 2014.

      Made a solar finder out of a spare skywatcher finder-scope using the pinhole camera principle.
      Removed lenses, covered front with foil and added a pinhole with a needle. Held in place With elastic bands (could use something more permanent but this is very easy to replace). The lens cap still fits over the foil for protection when not in use.
      On the rear I used some kitchen parchment taped to the inside of the adapter that holds the “eyepiece stalk” and added a crosshair. 
      Pinhole projection gives a solar disk about 3-4mm and whole thing is adjustable as per the normal finder-scope.
      Tested yesterday and works a treat, I can now get the Quark on target without having to use the WL wedge with 25mm then 8mm to get it aligned first.

      For some reason I've found time to use the Solar Film I've had for 2 years...fitted to 25 x 100 bins. I may have to paint them though..😊 ps... the Wine was nice.
      Stay safe all
