August 19 Solar Activity- good seeing

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow SGL members, hope you're all getting some sun!

I was graced with several hours of clear skies and good seeing. These images are my personal best, IMO (based on noise,presence of newtonian rings, chromosphere details,ect).


I also tried experimenting with a whitelight mosaic and another animation.

I am having stacking issues with my white light, but I will be getting started on my animation soon. I am excited to show you that, if it turns out.

This images are taken with the usual gear and processing. 

Thanks for looking and clear skies (especially for the eclipse).

Comments welcome

Nice selection, the Ha closeups are particularly good.   :icon_biggrin:

Thanks Peter. Those are prime focus shots. The full disk was with the reducer. 

My to be announced animation is with a 3x Barlow.

Holy, I must have been half asleep while processing a couple of these.


This turned out really good for reprocessing:

      Well, its been a long time coming but finally managed to get something captured and processed of this season.  I have captured a handful of nights in the past month but am struggling to get much out of them but I do need to spend more time on the raw data so there might be some more in there.  Despite the altitude, I'm fairly happy with this result considering the size of the scope compared to other observers in the forum. I think the colour is a little off so will look to correct at some point but wanted to get something up in the gallery for now.
      Clear skies and good luck imaging to you all, especially the UK based observers.

      Good day fellow SGL members! 
      I went out for a brief imaging session to capture this tiny moon phase. A personal lowest illumination capture to date- a mere 15%!
      Best 20% of 6836 frames
      FC, AS!3, Fitswork, Gimp
      Anyways, cheers from Canada. Thanks for looking and clear skies!
