16.08.2020 A couple of snaps of the SE disturbance.

Recommended Posts

Early start but speckled cloud and then the thermal wobbles delayed things.
Changed to Noise Robust 3 instead of 2 in SharpCap. Autostakkert. It helps to match the seeing.
Pushing much harder in ImPPG for more impact when images are posted online.
2x GPC [instead of 2.6x] for a bigger window and less wobbling on the disturbance.

Hi Geoff,

We have been "suffering" an extended heatwave [28-30+C/ high 80s-90F] with little cloud for shade and zero rain.
The solar seeing conditions have often been poor. With lots of thermal wobbling, glazing and defocusing.

What's this about "Live Stacking?"  :)

Rusty,

That’s a pretty cool Summers day out here in Oz.

I arranged to extend the control cables to the mount to be able to sit in the “office” while solar imaging. Much better than the ol’ ten year grey bin and dark sheet.

Isn't Noise Robust a part of Live Stacking?  

Perhaps I ought to start reading manuals, but why waste a habit of a lifetime :D

Last time I managed to see the sun, was over a week ago. I need to move house!

I hear Australia is nice at this time of year. :wink2:

Noise Robust settings are for all captures. [I hope.] :)

Whoops and an apology:

I have only now realised that I wrote Noise Robust in SharpCap. :wacko:
What I meant, of course, was Autostakkert. :blush:
I'll get my coat. :icon_clown:

Some nice close up detail there, any activity is so welcome. Cycle 25 maybe be here, but old Sol is still pretty quite compared to a few years back.
