Re: G band instead of Ca-k filter

Heya, Just because it was asked, you can get filter mounts with threaded cells that will hold a 25mm filter. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Eyepiece-Filter-Mount-28mm-threaded-For-mounting-25mm-filters-/152118946645?hash=item236afeeb55 If you search eyepiece filter mount 28mm for 25mm filter you'll find ...

Rainer,
Always so crisp your images are. What I see so vaguely is always so clearly shown in your mosaics. You hear it enough from me. Thanks my fellow solar astronomer!

Re: animated GIFS

WoW Pedro. Outstanding very professionally done images. I would think these are from a professional observatory if I didn't know better. Every GIF movie here shows the Sun in a way no still can. The Sun is dynamic. Always changing and these show that well. Keep em' coming!

Re: Prominences in different wavelengths and the solar corona

I think the Baader Coronagraph is more set up as a prominence viewer. It has Ha filters for one which a true coronagraph shouldn't need. I wonder if the Ha filters would actually reduce the chance of seeing the corona? Alexandra has one and could give comments. One needs an excellent instrument, hig...

Poor seeing does make details really soft. Both in imaging and visual.

Coronado SolarMax II 60 DS. 16x and 22x ( Ha ) The first thing I notice is the multiple plage complex of ARs 12785-86 and 88 ...

Re: winter sun photos & animation

Paul,
You should be commemorated of these. They are awesome! Stunning I would say. The second animation up from the bottom tops them all. Just look how that filament moves as the magnetic fields pull it towards the spot!

BIG thumbs up!

Re: Prominences in different wavelengths and the solar corona

Just because something is difficult doesn’t always mean it’s impossible. Amateur astronomers have always been an ingenious bunch and have succeeded in many areas professionals would have thought impossible. Why should viewing/imaging the solar corona be any different? It’s simply a challenge to be m...

I have two SolarMax II scopes so they are different. One etalon is internal. Keep us posted on how the SolarMax III does. I have been quite curious on this scope for awhile.

Flares!?

Very nice! It looks like I am going to miss out due to clouds. I have snow in the area but none at my house with it being at higher altitudes northwest of here.

Thanks for the session report.
