First solar test of my new mono camera


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I had my first crack at the Sun with my PST and the new Touptek Mono camera I recently acquired. Conditions weren't great, a bit of thin whispy cloud, and it was a bit windy, but overall I'm very happy with this result. Best of all I only needed two captures to get a whole disk image, much easier than the 6 I needed when using a mono converted SPC900 :)

None one Sam. Looks fairly flat which is unusual for a PST :rolleyes:

Cheers David, yeah I was very please with that too. Previous Mosaics of 6 panes really badly showed up the PST sweet-spot, but this 2 image effort seems to suffer much less. I think there's a bit of a darkened triangle on the left of the disk, but that's the worst artifact.

Nice image Sam, can't see the join :)

I stacked with Autostakkert, and stitched with Microsoft ICE, which seems to have done a really clean job.
