AR 2786 surrounded by waves (New images added on 6Dec)

Post by yltansg » Thu Dec 03, 2020 5:56 am

3Dec - We had a brief moment of fair seeing this morning. It was good enough to catch AR 2786 surrounded by waves of plasma. Setup: C11 with an ARIES D-ERF, Daystar Chromosphere and Basler ace acA1920-155uc camera.

Image

Processed in AS!3, ImPPG and minor level and contrast adjustment in PS. Main credit goes to the equipment.

Hi Alfred,

This image of the nice AR2786 is fantastic.

Thanks Pedro, Valery and Mark.

All credit goes to the equipment. The seeing condition was fair with tons of fleeting clouds. Very glad I caught this nice shot.

The active region is near the limb and the combination of all features gives us a sense of depth, a kind of 3-D effect. The darker filaments seem to be higher than the brighter areas. I must take more time to enjoy it and also figure out the high and low areas :)

I will go through the other video recordings to see if there are any other good ones.

This is another image of AR 2786, taken at about 8:10am on 3 Dec:

Image

It is slightly more noisy compared to the first image. Again, besides processing in AS!3 and ImPPG, I only did minor level and contrast adjustment in Photoshop.

I found another 2 usable images from the 3 Dec session on AR 2790

Image One was taken at 8:19am:

Image Two was taken at 8:20 am

Which one do you prefer better?

The seeing had turned bad by the time I worked on it. Overall I am still quite please with this image.
