Just a little challenge for you as you are suc...

Re: Sol from the 13th of February 2019.

Absolute beauty in all the shots Eric :bow I was wondering if you can spot polar faculae in your CaK images? The BAA at the moment is trying to get data this year on polar faculae (solar minimum) however not many of us take white light images. Do you think they would be able to use our CaK images in...

Re: Proms Feb 6,7,12 + Question

The Sun should look like what your eyes see down the eyepiece :) remember the Sun is a big ball of flowing plasma, so no sharp edges.

These pics are great!

Re: Software Section On The Forum

Very good!
I have a post saved which goes through NeatImage in a detailed manner, that post could be added?

I was wondering recently whether we could have a section for wildlife/nature (Sunlit Earth) section on the forum? or will it start getting too complicated.

I really enjoyed the faint prom in the east Brian, it is always exciting to find such a faint prom which can only be seen when cranking up the camera exposure. It is like a hidden secret :hamster: :bow

Re: Feb 10th - A Bit of an experiment!

Super white light but the CaK doesn't look good. I know how good your CaK images usually are and this isn't up to your usual standard. That looks a bit like my CaK images through my TEC140, I have almost given up :lol:
