This is my first attemts with the Quark Chromosphere on a WO FLT98 with IR cut filter. Camera Skyris 274M.
Seeing was not that great.
Got som Newtons rings that I will try to deal with later, tilting camera should work I hear, any other ideas for solving this?
The 2 pictures are from the same area but I turned the knob on the Quark halfway around on the second, that gives quite a different view as the filament almost disappears.
Stacked in Autostakkert, colored in PS.
Any solar experts out there with any ideas on what's the weakest component in my current setup that I should swap to get better images? I know the camera is getting old, maybe my stacking skills needs improvement? Mostly aiming for solar close-ups right now.
Out and imaging early this morning by 7.53 as the wife said we would be "out by 11.15" and I'd rather not have a thick ear!
Beautiful clear sky but it soon became apparent that seeing was off. Suppose the TEC140 is more susceptible than the smaller TSA102 that I used last year...
Results from first few runs disappointing, so this is the first that I deemed half decent - captured at 8.12am
Will add more later, but to start, the 'New Spot', or AR2829. Looking like a Beatle... or house spider or something (bright arch the body with legs out of each side)... or perhaps it's just me (too much sun) !
Best 100 frames from 3000. Flat frame calibrated. 0.29"/Pixel. Basler '174' > Quark > TEC140 > Baader D-ERF. AS!2 > ImPPG > Ps.
GONG image for ref:
Don't know where you guys and girls get the time to process all this solar data!
Found time now for just one, from the 20+ files from Tuesday (still got Monday and Sunday to go through)!
AR2827, taken at 9.07am
Best 100 frames from 3000, flat frame calibrated.
