Sol HA and Proms 6-4-17

Recommended Posts

seeings not so good today , very fine cloud hovering in front of sol and fazy too, AR2645 has nearly gone, its been a great AR and I'm sad to see it go. 2648 is a poor replacement I hope it develops.

kit- ed80, Quark chromo, asi120mc, about 300 frames in each shot .

thanks for looking and I wish you clear skys,  charl.

Clear blue this morning! Like a fool I had breakfast again first. then set up... clouded literally as I pulled in the focus :crybaby2: Just saw a couple of small bright proms and the remains of 2645 for a second. Solid heavy cloud here now. Hope you have better luck...

Thanks Charl, but it's all over to you now. Nothing but grey (DARK grey) stuff here.

Look forward to seeing the results

      Hi everyone I am new here, I live in Perth Western Australia (bottle class 5) and have just brought my new set up. There hasn’t been anyone in the area I can talk to about astrophotography so tried to do it all myself online and I fear I may have incorrectly purchased some things. (I tried to get things one at a time for budget purposes)
      I have this set up
      heq5, evostar ed80, .85reducer & corrector, evoguide 50ed, zwo 120mm mini for guiding and just my canon 200d mkii for the imaging. 
      The telescope, I think I may have brought something that’s not great for imaging and that’s all I’ve wanted to do. 
      can you please provide a better telescope alternative that would be suitable for all my other gear without having to buy like a new mount etc. I’m thinking just a slightly better scope not too heavy, opinions would be much appreciated 💖💖💖 xx

      I'm still battling fairly heavy smoke from the wildfires west of my Las Vegas location.  Otherwise, seeing was 4/5.
      Thanks for the peek.

      I am looking for a Daystar Quark Chromosphere. I am looking for a perfectly working unit without any degradation in optics. A few recently took images from the eyepiece are welcomed. The price is as low as possible (of course). Cosmetic is not a concern. Give me a message here or email me at <private contact details removed> (remove the {xxx}) to see the email address. I'll pay via paypal and accept shipping worldwide. Thanks for your attention.
      Clear skies.

      Well, not all just the sw ed80 and ed120.
      I have acquired a taste lately for flat fields and round stars edge to edge. I've never bothered with ff/fr so far, I'd rather spend the money on an extra scope, but I feel I can justify one. But which one, as I would like to improve both my scopes. So it boils down to this: has anyone used either the dedicated sw ff/fr for the ed80 with the Ed120 or the ff/FR for the Ed120 with the  ed80 and got good results? And when I say good, I don't mean great (as with the dedicated one), just better than using the scope with out one.
      If so, which ff/FR did you use to match one scope and slightly improve the other, the ff/fr for the ed80 or the ed120? Perhaps a third party one? (but not too expensive, because it would beat the purpose of buying both the dedicated ones). Something like that: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/stellamira-telescopes/stellamira-2-0-8x-reducer-field-flattener-with-m48-adapter.html ??
      P. S. I am using a Canon 600d dslr
