Re: Imaging from home (T300 Solar newton, K-Line

Thanks again for the interest and the comments. Sorry, I'm not a very regular on solarchat. I know solarchat from the time before the forum has this form; it was already having very interesting posts and articles. I forgot to mention that the scope is a non aluminized solar newton, on truss structur...

Re: Imaging from home (T300 Solar newton, K-Line

Sorry, I was off yesterday. Thank you for the nice comments. The scope is indeed a 300mm aperture. I was using Neatimage in the past to denoise, the free version however. The free version supports only 8bit. So I decide to denoise under Pix Insight. It allows various denoising possibilities. I used ...

Imaging from home (T300 Solar newton, K-Line

I was quite happy about the picture taken from 3000 altitude (St Véran, French Alps) last year and this year. I wanted to try the same setup in my area, in the "heights" of Belgium, at about 600m altitude. Here, the best result after selecting and some tweaking + image size reduction: http://www.pre...

Re: Spot, Granulation, Facula, Pattern in KLine with a T300

Thank you again for the comments. Leo, you would wonder my setup: the mirror is an old mirror from the 80's which has been converted to solar, the truss and other parts are second hand, which I adapted a bit in my garage. The old F6 optic looks to be good and I have a good secondary also. I should g...

Re: Surface, Spot, Faculae and Protuberance in CaK with a T300

Thanks again,

The filter is a Lunt Cak.
The front filters of the Lunt have been replaced by a KLine.
As per the Kline pictures with the same scope, the pictures have been taken from St Véran / France (Alps).

Solar newton - An open support for the primary mirror

With a solar newton, the primary is dealuminated and the 96% of the main unreflected flux must be evacuated backwards. The primary support must leave a field open to the maximum. http://www.presencenet.be/nucleus2.0/media/13/20200821-01_20200812_094557_crs.jpg In the first version of the primary mir...

Hi!
Thanks for the comments.
Yes, I used a Baader KLine filter at 396nm (not 296nm!).

Surface, Spot, Faculae and Protuberance in CaK with a T300

Finally, here are the pics taken with a CaK rear filter in the train. The protuberances were more challenging, as the light flux is very low and was mixed up with internal reflection. Forgive me for some stronger photoshop intrusions here. http://www.presencenet.be/nucleus2.0/media/13/20200819-20200...

Re: CaK and Ha with a T250

Thanks for the comments. The results are superior than the one I could achieve in my location. But the conditions were difficult at St Véran and I needed to glue my eyes on the screen all time and catch quieter moments. The CaK is a Lunt mod, meaning that the 2 front filters have been removed and re...

The "classic" for solar imaging is the ASI174MM. It supports 1936X1216@164FPS Full well: 32ke- It is a global shutter camera. The 1600 supports "only" 1920×1680 57.7fps Full well: 20ke- It is a rolling shutter camera. But the 1600 has about twice less read noise which is a + factor. From the numbers...
