London is in a cloudless heatwave at the moment so I took this opportunity. I did take some barlow shots but I didn't consider those up to much.
Tried a slightly different image blend. Should have shrunk the prom layer slightly really but we'll see how this goes...
I've done all my imaging so far with this telescope mounted on a manual azimuth, which is great for a camera or certain binoculars but it's always been a bit of an endeavour for a moving Sun and I lost a screw for the horizontal axis which doesn't help. The mount has been waning for this sort of thing and the vertical movement is temperamental so I don't feel I'm getting the pristine results I should get with a more steady video.
Is there a simple, reasonable budget mount that would work well for this telescope, preferably needing as little (or no) extras as possible in order to actually attach the telescope?
It needs to run off the mains.
The solar disc is coming alive. Littered with filaments. Not much for proms, but the disc is really something to look at now, with all the twisted filaments.
This is a 19 pane mosaic, DS PST.
Best 30 % of roughly 1,000 frames in AS!2. Used Unsharp mask, Smart sharpen, high pass, median filter in CS5.
