So, I tested my newly acquired DMK41 mono cam, both with and without a nosepiece reducer.

What a difference from QHY 5LII- no Newton's rings. Easy focusing, and better frame rate

great shots mate. do you get full discs with the 60ed ?, thanks. charl.

No, its a 2 pane image... when i put on a 0.5x reducer on the nosepiece, 3/4th of the sun was there. Guess, I need a bigger chip but they cost £££. Don't want to go the CMOS way because of Newton's rings. Guess I will get a full disc with my guidescope. I will try next time.

      Solar Setup for sale

      I have put this on sale twice but had changed my mind both times, but think I can finally let this go:
      Entire solar setup including:
      Quark Chromosphere with power cable
      Skywatcher ST102 with skywatcher autofocuser and Hitech Astro DC focuser controller- This makes fine focusing a breeze as you can focus right from the laptop screen covered with dark cloth without going to the telescope.
      Baader UV/iR rejection filter 2”
      Rowan astronomy tilt adapter to take care of Newton rings
      Relevation astro 2” extender for straight through imaging
      £1100 cash or bank transfer or paypal with fee(I had previously listed this for £1200). Pickup from London
      The quark is good for imaging. Images have been published in Sky at Night, once in the magazine and once on the website.
      Sample images attached. Setup shows entire setup (camera and mount not for sale)
      Quark and accessories- £900
      Scope with autofocuser and Hitec Astro DC focus- £175

      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.

      Spent an hour or so clearing down my external SSD that I use when imaging.
      This was a data set not even looked at. 800 frames from 3500 - Aug 1st.
      Trying out some processing ideas I’ve been formulating to give it a bit of ‘glow and life’ to the writhing mass of solar plasma!
      TSA102s. Captured and processed on a MacBook Pro with Basler’s Phylon software, AS!2, ImPPG and PSCC2017. No darks or flats used.

      Taken around 7.30am and as previous image from that day, no darks or flats acquired or used.
      Quick process before bed as trying to catch up with all the data!
      TSA102s - Quark Chromo - Basler 174. Processed in AS!2, ImPPG, PsCC2017 on a MacBook Pro.
