'The Cobra' - 15th May 2019

Recommended Posts

An image of AR 2741 and surrounding area taken on the 15th May 2019.  I was actually observing but the seeing was so steady I reached for the ZWO ASI 290MM.  This image is without any additional magnification.  I used a region of interest that 'squared' up this widescreen chip (1096 x 1096).  After processing you can also pick out the disappearing AR2740.  The bifurcated spot and its filament reminded me of a Cobra.  I will also post an image using the 2.5x Powermate.

Camera: ZWO ASI 290MM, 60 second captures at low gain. Stack of 30% best frames.

Scope: Lunt Ha 80mm

Software: Firecapture, AS!2 and IMPPG

Coffee: Burundi Natural
