First solar shots


Recommended Posts

My brother bought the Altair CMOS imager from Green Witch.  Tried it this morning through a window.  This is the best few images we got.


Using the grey of the Altair imager program managed to get a near decent image of the side of the sun.  Managed to get the sunspots even though it is blurry and double imaged from the window glass.  As a first attempt and try, it does seem to work.

What other equipment are you using ?

What processing did you do ?


Using a Celestron Skymaster 130 on a equitorial mount.  Don't have a motorised mount yet.  May get one later on though.

As for processing, just the standard Altair progam.  No stacking of images, just straight shots of the sun through Baader film.  Still trying to get used to the program as to how to get it to work for stack imaging and other things like that..
