Hi all

 

Seen some great images from the transit on this forum.  Congrats to all who shared.bow.gif   I had to work on the 11th and only managed a quick view of the transit through a pair of 15x70 binos with Seymore solar film.  I guess better than nothing.

 

I had a small window of opportunity yesterday late in the afternoon.  With the sun so low in the sky at this time of year I only managed about 90 minutes of fun.  It was in the low 30's and windy with gusts over 25 mph.  The seeing was the worst I've ever seen.  Like looking through a running river!  I imaged through it anyway. 

 

Equipment was ES 102 ED with a Quark. Thanks for looking, comments good or bad are welcome.

 

The first set is the same area processed differently. Which one looks best and why?

Nice James, particularly for the conditions.  I like 4 best as it looks the most natural, and if you could get the prom in that one to match how it looks in number 2 I think that would improve it.

Glad you liked it.  That one and the last one had an interesting region in the upper left corner that was the most prominent surface feature at the time.

Yeah, I tried to pull out as much as I could of the prom without over exposing the surface.  I'm not very good at merging 2 images.

 

Thanks for the comments.

Looks good, that AR has lasted longer than the others!

 

Very best,

I like the last one best. Nice contrast and you can see the AR.
