The Sun - 04 Sep 2019 - 08:28UT

The Sun – 04 Sep 2019 – 08:28UT Clouded up, by the time I managed to image it – my usual luck! AR90/900 + PST Etalon + D-ERF + SCT mod + Altair Hypercam 178M If you look for a bit, I believe it forms a large rightward spiral.

 

 

The Sun - 25 Aug 2019 - 14:42UT

The Sun – 25 Aug 2019 – 14:42UT Tested AR90/900 with standard cheap x5 Barlow Just to see how much I could reach in magnification In this case it was Altair 178M – 2x Binning – 800×600 ROI I guess, if I find a stable atmosphere, I will get into focus better This was really a small area barely visible in full disc mode!
