High Res Proms, Spicules, Cells | Jet Flyby | Oct 10th 2019

Recommended Posts


It's rained the past few days, lots of storms, a weird wet October so far here in Florida. But this morning was improved, had a clear sky this morning around 10am and pretty good seeing, so I was able to get some high resolution data of a few features, despite there being very little going on, there's a rather big and bright prominence group that seems to be a morphology similar to either a hedgerow or curtain. Despite that, I also took a look at spicules at the limb without any major features as this can be done any day with good enough seeing, and an interesting comparison of convection cells in g-band at 80mm and 150mm apertures to show the difference in resolution when imaging at near critical sampling level. While imaging, I accidently caught a jet transit at the big prominence this morning which is really cool.

Very best,

Very nice images, and a nice catch with the aeroplane :)

Super set of images as always!

The comparison between the Convection Cell Resolution Comparison 80mm vs 150mm is fascinating.
