Re: New Sunspots! CaK Sun 2nd March

Very nice CaK shots Mark! What's that just off the eastern limb?

I am clouded out again today but noticed the two spot groups on the SDO continuum image.

I bet pre-Meade etalons are hard to find. I came into this Ha game way too late. :(

That's an interesting setup. See, Meade Coronado isn't all bad.

Jaegers. I haven't heard that name in awhile. They were well known for quite a number of years. I wonder what happened to them.

Splendid images as typical of you, Pedro.

I have all the Coronado Cemax oculars. My SolarMax II 60 came with the 25mm and my SMII 90 came with the whole set 25mm, 18mm and 12mm plus the Cemax barlow. I also have the 19mm and 8mm Lunt eyepieces. I also use my 20mm TeleVue plossl a lot and I also have an 18.2mm DeLite and 6mm Delos. The Orio...

I use the 540nm filter a lot. It's a major part of my arsenal on studying the photosphere.

You're right James

The 4 and 3mm eyepieces are very difficult to use. The 3mm is very rare, only a few were made
Like some .965"s I have used. They got that really tiny eye lens with no eye relief.

Rainer,
I got the new spot in the SE using my AT72EDII refractor as well. I hope it grows!

Nice images as usual.

Re: February 28 2021. WL only

Mark,
Most of the time today I was fighting clouds for a view. I didn't bother with Ha or imaging because of it. And yes the Sun is certainly rising in declination, that's for sure! It makes it much easier to observe the Sun!

Re: White Light Herschel/Solar Wedges

Yes James I have most of the Clave' gear. These are true Plossls and reputed to be the best in the market A lot of people would argue that in favor of TeleVue's plossls. Except for a lack of eye relief I like the Plossl design. I would love to view through the Clave' plossls to see how they do. James

Re: Hello!!! from a new member in Athens - ERF for C8

Lunt would be a good scope. They don't have the issues that plague DayStar and are better on average than Meade Coronado. Solarscope and Solar Spectrum are probably the highest rated in quality. You can get Solar Spectrum etalons through Baader Planetarium and Solarscope should be available in Euro...
