16th April 2020 Prom Animation


Recommended Posts

Call this a "proof of concept"
Only twenty images with 30 sec interval - SM60DS/ ED80/ ASI 1600
Processed FireCapture, AS3!, Imppg, Irfanview, Corono and convert to GIF in PIPP.
Hopefully there will be other opportunities to observe the sun, I'll try for a longer animation.
(Thanks to Martin S. for all the help and support)

Very nice.   Bloody time consuming to animate thats for sure, you've done a good job of it so far.  If you are into scripts, you can write one to alter the gain/exposure so that it records the proms then immediately the surface, then pauses for an interval, and repeat.  Thats on my todo list.

I was thinking of taking a surface exposure immediately before the sequence and superimposing that on the solar disk......

Thats what I did in mine, as a static image, but I think your black surface looks great.
