22.01.2020 prom Surprise!

Recommended Posts

Quite a sunny day here but with really awful thermal seeing and constant thin cloud.

6"f/8, internal D-ERF, 1.125GPC, Baader 35nm H-a, motorized PST etalon, ASI174.

Poor images but I managed to capture surface and prom simultaneously.

SharpCap, AS!2, PhotoFiltre7.

Indeed Pete. I wish I could have done it better justice. I was a martyr to "the thermals."
Though I do my best to equalise the temperatures inside the dome with those outside.
The sun is too weak to warm anything at this time of year.
It being so low is a major handicap for any celestial object.
Normally it is a complete waste of time to look at anything much below 30-35° local altitude.
That doesn't mean I won't try. There isn't much choice in the matter at 55N.
