Got some nice detail in there Charl, had a quick squint but seeing is wobbly, probably won't bother imaging.

Hows the daily total going ?

Very nice set Charl. Had a quick look early this morning, but seeing was terrible and it's blowing a gale here.

thanks Dave, yes agreed mate woberly, it was doing a fit earlier mate, I notice lastnight when looking at Jupiter the seeing had gone bad, think the jet stream must be in play, its still worth getting some shots but most frames are being deleted. clear skys, charl.

Glad you managed to grab something Charl, the JS was with us a lot today which really doesn't help.

thanks Ewan, yer I noticed lastnight after trying to catch Jupiter the lousey jet stream was back again, it was a mass kulling of frames thismorrning, but im quite happy with the result, there a bit noisey on the big screen, not too bad on the pc, but best viewed on a tablet but you might need a tablet after seeing them :happy7:. clear skys, charl.

      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.

      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 ??

      Sorry for the delay in posting, was just too knackered yesterday to do processing justice...
      Was out making the most of another clear night and grabbing colour data for M106. By 2am the sky was really clearing up, but Julie had decided that our "one walk a day" should be to hear the dawn chorus - so after less than three hours sleep, we were heading back outside just after 5am to be treated to a beautiful sight of moon and oncoming sunrise...

      Bird recording >Bird song.mp3

      We continued our walk along the footpath, beside the 'hedgerows' to get a better vantage point for sunrise...

       
      Whilst awaiting sunrise I had time to check GONG to see what was happening... more specifically the 'hedgerow prom' from the previous day...


      A Blue Tit announcing 'sunrise!'.... Blue Tit.mp3

      My intention had been to head home for porridge and bed, but decided that I really did need to have another go at some solar imaging beforehand... J was not overly amused 'burning the candle at both ends', etc!

      On the walk back home, the frost descended...


      All photos just with an old iPhone6

      back home, set the gear up and whilst the Quark was warming, so was the porridge!

      Although I'm fairly new to solar imaging, I can see why solar imagers get up nice and early to grab the best seeing. I could see the difference coming into OACapture from my old DMK41 camera just how 'relatively still' the recording was (a QuickTime screen recording below).

      Untitled.MOV   Refreshed today, here is my first go at processing.
      Captured at 7.59am 45 seconds @ 15FPS (max) best 100 frames taken from 676. TSA102s / Quark Chromo / 0.5x Reducer
      Processed with a 'bag' flat and dark frame in AS!2 and ImPPG via Wine on a MacBook Pro. Finished in PsCC2017

       

      Updated Gong image from time of recording. Definitely want to get better and perhaps source a better camera - I have a thread in Equipment if any Solar folks would care to offer advice...
