The Clear Sky Chart predicted average to poor seeing and poor transparency... and... it was!

Nice proms Rick!

 

I try to remember... we can't see anything like this, at all, not on anything, other than our star. Not any other star at all. At all!

 

Very best,

Very best,

Funny you should say that Marty;  I was thinking something quite similar a couple of days ago while sitting outside looking at the stars.  I've done the moon - boring as it never changes.  Planetary imaging was a challenge because of my poor seeing but one night I captured Saturn and Jupiter at what appeared to be the theoretical resolution of my C11; great but I couldn't wait another two years for that to happen again.  Then too the planets became so low as to be hardly worth imaging.  DSOs?  I never had the the precise alignment nor tracking-adjustment goodies to attempt DSOs.  Then too, getting old, meant late nights were fighting against my metabolism.

 

Enter the Sun.  It's always changing, even in the valley of it's 11-year cycle, there are wonders to be seen - surprises each day.  Tracking does not have to be spot on or continuously adjusted - wonderful.  It's big, it's bright and it's daytime!

 

Daytime?  Tough for those who work daily as the morning hours are best.  Perfect for those with short-work weeks or retired people (like me), time to get up, eat, set up, have a coffee and then start imaging.

 

Yes, I'm now a solar junkie... and proud of it. lol.gif

 

Best,

Rick

Yes, that's my favorite too.  Funny, early on it was in the midst of noise and later on it just seemed to pop out... and I grabbed it.

 

Best,

Rick

Recall that Super Long Spike Prom at 3:30 O'clock... ?

It's just shy of 7 earth diameters long!
