A quick morning solar session before work

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Some more solar shenanigans before I go to work seeing wasn't great either but nice to be out again so I quickly set up in the Dumpy Dalek, I tried the ASI camera in the Ca-K scope but got Newtons rings, switched back to the DMK41 & tried a Barlow lens still Newtons rings & the same in the Ha scope. you don't get any of this in white light.
This solar imaging malarky is a right royal pain, I don't think tilt adapters will work using PST's so kinda stuck for ideas.
The close up of the Sunspot was done using the ASI camera, ED80 & a 2X Barlow on the nosepiece into another 3X Barlow lens. A bit unorthodox method but its all I had to hand & I couldn't be bothered to run upstairs to get more Barlow lenses.
All images with varying frames from 250 to 500 stacked in Autostakkert 3 depending on their quality, Ca-K PST, Ha PST, ED80 & Lunt wedge for white light.
