I’m trying to finish up my solar setup.
Currently have an ASI174MM, LS80, LE80, and Lunt CaK module. I also have the Lunt solar wedge.
I’ve been gaining a lot of experience on Ha on the mostly blank disc and it’s coming along nicely. Got my toes dipped in CaK now and it’s a different challenge but also coming along.
My next learning point is about White Light. When I image with the wedge I find I have to drop one of my nighttime 2” color filters (been using the green one) into the wedge to cut the light enough to image at the fastest possible speed on the camera and w it in there I’m barely meeting focal length. I know I’m doing this wrong and I’d rather leave my nighttime filters alone and in my night setup.
1) what filters should I be adding to the white light wedge for solar imaging? Please be specific as there are a lot of options out there. I’ve seen the debates on continuum/ir/etc. not sure where the thinking lands though.
2) what configuration should the imaging train be in w the filters/etc from answering question 1? Currently, I think I’m doing it wrong w/:
sun->LE80->lunt wedge->2” green filter->174mm
I’m pretty sure better to put the filter before the wedge (screwed in it?)
Hope these questions are straight forward enough. Thanks in advance!
