Re: Morning Snaps

Oh dear! poor batty :( but I guess that is life and the Python had to eat. We sit in our garden most nights watching our bats but they are all tiny compared to yours.

Some beautiful pictures of life in all its glory.

Thanks Mark, yes Apollo said that too and showed me your video. I think that is a little out of my league and risk :(

Re: Ha Views - 3rd August

Oooh!! I like the HaT images a lot!! very nice detail :bow :hamster: I had wished I had got the C11 out earlier on the Friday because even at 11am the PST was just about passable, but I couldn't risk it, I went for imaging with the TEC instead for the early session :)

Re: Sun part 2 Friday 31st July WL & CaK

Thanks guys :)

Mark, we tried that last night and it made it 10x worse :shock: we will have to see if the Xrite i1Pro helps matters at all (they just need to send it, still waiting).

Re: August 1st - Busy Ha day

I think you have some of the finest spicule edge details I have ever seen Brian, you must have had wonderful seeing :bow :hamster: a super solar harvest! I am glad you have some rain (can't believe I said that, I wish we could get rid of ours).

Re: Calcium Sunday 2nd August

The close ups are a delight to view Mark :bow :hamster: what a difference 2 days make! Cheshire seems to be rain capital of the north, there always seems to a patch hovering over us at the moment. I am glad I took Friday off!

Wow!! these are some of the finest images I have seen, beautifully delicate like feather, I love it :bow :hamster:

Re: PST Mod C11

Thinking about this while nodding off last night and this fix doesn't help, all these images were taken at full size (not ROI). When I add a 2x Barlow the sweetspot isn't in the middle so I can't move the camera to the side. How do I straighten up the sweetspot or is this impossible?

Re: Sun part 2 Friday 31st July WL & CaK

Thanks everyone :) Mark, it is a Dell Precision 17 inch laptop with 4 K screen. It cannot display black at all even in video or photograph, it condenses it to solid blocks of greys. In full colour it is wonderful, for black it is hideous. I see no way round the problem. Trying to capture a prominenc...

PST Mod C11

Hello, I had an investigation of my PST mod and the C11 on Friday. It is absolutely rock solid and impossible to cause any tilt anywhere with every piece being either screwed on or click locked on. I did however turn the etalon around in circle and came up with this. I centred the spot each time and...

Sun part 2 Friday 31st July WL & CaK

I have now processed my WL and CaK both taken with TEC140 (with CaK stopped to 100mm). Camera ASI174 and 5x powermate for the close ups. They do look best if clicked through to Flickr and click the magnifier. I actually managed to spot the large prom in CaK first which was a surprise, I could see a ...
