Friday Sun 31st July '20

Post by Carbon60 » Fri Jul 31, 2020 4:21 pm

Hi all,

A hot day here and the morning started with a boiling Sun. The seeing conditions were just about good enough to capture some hi-res images in Ha and Ca II K.

Hydrogen alpha FD imaged with a Lunt 60 and the Hi-res images were captured with a 150mm/DS Lunt 35 mod. My RCT didn't cut it with the conditions.

Calcium II K images were captured with a Lunt B1800 for the FDs using a 72 mm f6 refractor and the hi-res images were captured with a 125 mm f7.8 refractor and Lunt B600.

Hi Stu,

Nice images, especially in CaK at a high res.

BTW Why don't you use a big 10" cannon?

Tremendous set Stuart, especially the CaK :bow :hamster: I too had a great time but stuck with the TEC140. I managed to test the C11 afterwards to try and iron out a few problems but the seeing through that was terrible but it didn't matter for my testing.

Hi Valery,

I started with the RCT, but the conditions just didn’t cooperate. I couldn’t freeze the effects of my local atmospheric seeing conditions well enough to give anything worth keeping.
