Those detailed surface shots are wonderful....."AR2659. Artistic I could not help myself..."    Science and art...great combo...

They remind me of those 3-D  stereographic images where if you defocus and stare at them long enough something emerges  !!

Super set again Charl, some compensation for the lurgey you are suffering! The surge activity I reported in the observing section is situated about 1/3 of the way from the top of your no 4 prom images, you can see a small blip which has since developed.  :icon_biggrin:

Nicely done Charl, just been doing a bit of visual and seeing is pretty steady, hope it last to get some images.

2659 looking very bright like it may do a bit of flaring.

Hi Charl,

You always have the most amazing photos.

I had hoped to get something like your first one -  I can't even dream of your other shots.

Here is today's effort:

DSC_0613.thumb.jpg.b6570327e7d7c935b7a237b62a1c24b4.jpg

But it's not a shadow of yours.  What can I do?  This is DSLR through my 8" Newtonian, but with a small Baader film filter (you know it's got a small cap of about 58 mm on the main dust cap).  It's ISO 100 and 1/40 secs.  There is no post-processing.

I tried to use my new Arduino driven auto-focus for the first time, but fell back to manual focus.  I think your focus is better than mine.  How do you get that amazing focus, for instance on the Active region.

Your contrast is also so much better than mine, clearly showing granularity.

Finally, I suspect light leakage during the day is more of an issue than at night.

Regards

Steve.

thanks Stevebz, your so kind mate, your pic is quite good mate, I use a frac for sol, newts do weird things when in the sun and using the small hole in you lid cuts down the detail you would get better results with a full filter over the end of you scope, I also use a Lunt solar wedge which is very contrasty , you cant use them with newts because of the heat build up on the mirrors, focus comes with practice keep at it and you will soon get the hang, I have marks on my focuser so that gets me near.

WL is hard, HA is no easyer but you have a lot more detail to play with, todays AR2659 is small and that can make it a lot harder to catch the detail.

clear sky charl.

      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
