Been a while since I have been able to get the Ha telescope out. Seeing was average to below average, still I was able to capture some images to practice on. Hope the sun shines on you favorably.

Not bad, not bad at all. That large group of proms look good. Here in Florida it's cloudy and raining.

Nice, I find solar observing addictive.  Photos just feed into it, especially nice work like this

Did you use another filter on top of the solar filter to cut back on glare in order to pick up that detail ? Don’t mind me I’m just learning solar observing, ha and white lite !

The double stack does cut out a lot of the glare.  It really enhances disk details.

I thought the double stacked ha scopes showed the views in red same as the single ? Or do you mean there is double stacked white as well ??

They do, however the DS reduces the band pass and so cuts out extraneous light which shows as a red glare.
