Sun 10.03.19 Small WL spot.

Recommended Posts

Small dark spot in white light. :thumbsup:

Several areas of disturbance [plage] spread around the disk in H-alpha.
At least two dark filaments.
Two nice proms opposite each other on the limb.
Several dark pores.

Check Gong H-a for the orientation of these features.

Cloud increasing here after a clear start at 09.00 CET.

Lost my Wi-Fi on the observatory laptop so missed my H-a blog update. :crybaby2:

Thanks for the update. It's all cloud, wind and rain here so not looking likely I will get any viewing time today. Of course the forecast for tomorrow (when I'm back at work) is sunny, bright and clear :mad2:

Sorry to hear that, David.

The filament at my 8.00 is large and branched a one end. Whoops! It has largely collapsed back into the sun! 10.50 CET.
The nearest prom is rather large with trunks supporting a "windblown" cloud with fine, smokey texture.

Seeing not so good as last time with more of a ring to my PST etalon sweet spot.
I'm moving the field of view around the disk to bring out the best view because it's not so even as before.

I have ordered Wiliam Optics 2x nosepiece to increase the power without jumping up to the 2.6x TS PC.
Then hopefully I can use the 32mms with full disk instead of the 26mm.
Backup is a new pair of Meade 4000 40mm. Just in case. Despite the smaller field of view.
