    Imaged 4/15/19. Is the long thread bottom left a filament?  What are the spider legs around the spot?  How long or high might they be?   Is my color too sledgehammer?  Captured with a double stacked Lunt 60mm and 3X barlow. Camera is a ZWO ASI 174mm.  Best 60 of 300 frames stacked in AS3, wavelets in Registax 6. I have a bunch of captures to practice on. This solar stuff is addictive!

good Job ! John. I like the colors.  In my quark, i am able to dial the unit to an off band position and not see filaments

I agree, really good image! I have a real tough time trying to get the colors right on mine. They're never the same twice it seems. Sometimes it's easier sticking with the mono color, plus colorizing can also wash out some detail if you don't get it right (which is my case most of the time). I know your Lunt 60 double stack can produce fantastic images, so looking forward to seeing more of them!

Yeah, but now we have a 6 day stretch ahead of us with no activity.  D:

Very nice and yes, that is a filament that you mention.  I agree with Terry that I see more details in B&W images and personally prefer them and I have seen images ranging from bright yellow, to orange, red and even blue so no rules about color if you decide to colorize your images.

 

The “spider legs” are small filaments following magnetic lines around the AR.  A great source for features can be found in this article:  https://www.prairiea...sun-in-h-alpha/

Lovely capture John!

 

The link posted describes macro features very nicely with pictures to describe the types of filaments in  your image at this scale. There are more features you'll see at larger scales!

 

I highly recommend checking out IMPPG (software, free) as an alternative to Registax for sharpening purposes (deconvolution & unsharp masking).

 

Very best,
