Absolutely crap seeing conditions... even the "blue" parts of the sky between the cloud gaps had a high haze.
Nice new active region (AR2706) with spots and a nice prominence showing a large detached section
Lunt LS60THa, ASI 1600MM camera and Sharpcap capture software

Dave,

Very nice.

We've been hampered by mist and smoke haze for the past few days.....

Have you considered using Corono to give a better display of the proms?

yeah, know the feeling. those bushfires on the SW side of Sydney really screwed up the skies

 

haven't heard of that software .... will go have a look

thanks for the recommendation :)

A fine set of images, despite the conditions. The detached prom is excellent.

Nicely captured what with the haze hampering your efforts. The prom is impressive!

 

Thanks Pete and John

 

We have had arsonist bush fires, council hazard reduction bush fires , both causing so much haziness

and then just a bit of natural high cloud haze ..... all of which has been making solar or nite time astronomy difficult to impossible

      THIS ITEM HAS NOW BEEN SOLD.
      This listing is for my personal narrowband filters (Kayron from Light Vortex Astronomy). They are the Astrodon Hydrogen-Alpha (HA), Oxygen-III (OIII) and Sulphur-II (SII) 3nm 1.25" narrowband set. These are considered the highest-end narrowband filters money can buy, able to produce images of exceptional quality and incredible sharpness, cutting through a vast amount of light pollution. The 3nm variants featured here are fantastic for pulling out fine nebulous structures clearly above background. For more information, please see Astrodon's website:
      https://astrodon.com/products/astrodon-narrowband-filters/
      Please note that these three filters together currently retail at just over £1,710 from UK suppliers, €2,180 from European suppliers or $1,690 from US suppliers. Payment is preferred via bank transfer but PayPal is OK with an extra 2.9% to cover PayPal fees. I'll cover postage to you via tracked Courier. 
      I welcome any questions you may have regarding this listing. Thank you for looking.

      The other night, I got a rather weird thing happen using Sharpcap. In live-stacking, the first image arrived and it was full of stars. So, without changing any settings, I did a "platesolve" (which also realigns the scope) to centralise my target. It did its single frame capture and I got a practically blank screen and a message saying it could only detect 3 stars. I tried reducing the "sigma" setting, as advised by the on-screen message, with little effect. What gets me is that the same settings produced a whole mass of stars in each of the subs that were being live-stacked. Never had this happen to me before, and no, of course I didn't do anything intelligent like saving the log file!
      I can always try to replicate this next time (although I always find trying to replicate something that isn't working to be a weird activity in itself!), but on the off-chance that anyone can see what was happening without the log file, I thought I would ask.
      Thanks.
