First Animations with the 5-Inch Refractor


Recommended Posts

These are my first animations with the Explore Scientific 127mm refractor. These types of animations take a while to process so these were taken about 5 days ago. I've become more adept at keeping brightness and sharpness levels consistent. These links include AR2564 and AR2565, and represent 35 minutes in real time. The plage region where the new spots are forming is interesting, as is the limb area around AR2565. Note that they may take a few seconds to load, particularly the second one.

Environs of AR2564:

AR2564 & AR2565:


As an aside, and for those with a literary bent, when I watch these animations I am reminded of Shakespeare's:

"Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble."
