Another lucky Tuesday

Recommended Posts

This time tried out the Solarscope in single form but used the double stack blocking filter to see if I could get more light using a 3x lens. It worked, I had much more light and quicker shutter speed. Once I started on the timelapse the clouds rolled in and stopped play.

and then some in between clouds shots using Bob's Calcium H filter (no more than WL really)

and I spent a whole hour trying to colour this, also spent days trying too, I just can't do blue/purple/pink but I can do red, what am I missing?

Amazing images, Alexandra, a treat as always to see these :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  You'll have to work Saturdays and have Tuesdays off :laugh:

How long did you get for the time lapse? You may have been cut short but there's still so much going on and you have done a great job, I certainly found it very hard to do an anim and you've made it look easy!

I prefer the colour to the mono, to me it's easier to see the structure with the help of the colour. Must try a purple white light, my mum is always nice and supportive of my solar addiction and she loves purple.

Thanks, Alexandra. It's been so active, I can see why you wanted to get an anim of it. No doubt weekend forecast for you is same as here :grin:

Number 3 is just out of this world, amazing. Lucky you to get such great images on a day off. Wish my contract allowed for days off.

RED TO0, 2.50, 255. GREEN TO 0, 0.9, 255. BLUE TO 0, 0.30, 255. I got this, hope you don't mind. also had a go at 3d

:) :) :) I like the 3D :) no problems having a go at these, I never mind anyone playing. However, I was trying to make the image purple as it is a UV capture (Calcium H) and it turned out a strange magenta :lol: I like the fiery orange though :)

Is this a near purple levels RGB= 7, 1.00, 219. RED= 0, 0.42, 255. GREEN= 0, 0.30, 255. BLUE= 0, 0.62, 255. JUST PLAE WITH CENTER SLIDER.

Thanks guys :) :) :)

Thanks Peter, that is a great colour on the granulation, I love it :) however I think the penumbra and umbra are lost, this is the problem I was running into time and time and again. I think this is only going to work by masking off the spot and colouring it differently to the surrounding granulation. It is really tough colouring Calcium images ;)

Beautiful animation you caught there.

Can't wait to get going again with Solar myself but my Quark is still being assembled :-(

If I can catch anything like these with it I will be a very happy dude.

Keep it up Alex, solar makes a nice change for me.

Lovely !

Animations are my favorite though :) .. to me, they release/share a lot more information about 'it' than do individual snap shots in time.
