20200613 H-beta Sun

Added some black stickers inside the new SHG tube and stray light blocker on the lens, I can capture the image of the sun today.
The result seems acceptable, although the scanning speed is still very natural and low (0x).

Also very important: need to make sure you are not recording sun while speed is in ramp up phase (accelerating)
but i was successful later on

2X speed 30 frames
