Something lurking round the corner?

Recommended Posts

Just noticed a small but intense hot spot on the oncoming solar limb with a couple of spikey emissions. Often the precursor of an interesting AR.   ?

And rain tomorrow on my day off.

Character building, solar astronomy in the UK, isn't it

Best activity for some time, very fast moving, changes obvious in nearly real time. Worth a look on GONG if you're clouded out.   ?

Just spotted its arrival on the disk in WL. There is a sizeable field of faculae with some pores, and larger sunspot very close to the limb. Some initial Ca-K observations suggest quite a few faint proms along the eastern limb. Will show the images later

Saturday: Clear here until the arrival of thin, high cloud, mid-afternoon.

Incredible detail on both ARs at high powers using the binoviewer [for the first time in anger] using 2.6x GPC on my 6" f/8 for 120mm f/10 effective.

Well worth binoviewing via Stage 2 PST with internal DERF. Far more relaxing and far more detail than the MkI cyclops mode.

Thanks for the inspiration to finally try H-alpha.  :thumbsup: Just a shame it can't be done by everybody on a shoestring.  :blush:

Cue busker's destitution, twanging blues, guitar riff.  "Nobody knows the troubles I've had.:biggrin:
