November 26th sun (surprise)
Posted 26 November 2012 - 03:19 PM
This morning I missed the prom liftoff because I thought it would still be there in the afternoon, but I was wrong. Therefore, I captured the last moment that you can see on the first sketch. There is a faint cloud above the surface.
FOR THE SURPRISE, CONTINUE SCROLLING DOWN !
Here my first full disk sun's sketch !

Now with this new full disk sun at 80X, you have a good idea in the difference between a Lunt 60 at is maximum magnification and the Lunt 152 at 300X. You can see the difference by the thickness of the chromosphere, the curvature of the sun limb and by the area visible in the eyepiece.

I love the presentation of the full disk at 80x, Andre. You have plenty of detail to appreciate individual regions, yet it gives a complete reference of locations for my eyes. I love it!

I'm really glad you like it. I like it myself and promise to do more.
Jason. Because I have two different size solar scopes, its easy for me to compare. In my 3" scope at 85X, the disk size is smaller than in the LS152 at 80X. Also in the 3" at 85X, the disk doesn't fit in the FOV but as you can see on the sketch, it fit very well in the LS152 because of the larger B1800 blocking filter compared to the B600 for the smaller scope. To get a full disk in the smaller scope, I have to reduce the magnification what make the details even smaller like in your PST.
