Hi,

 

I have written an article on high-resolution solar imaging covering different wavelengths.  Glad that the European Physics Journal (EPJ) Web of Conferences published it. You can read it at:

The article contains many high-resolution solar images. Since then,  I have continued my learning journey. Currently I am imaging with 1A Calcium-K filters on a C11.  Results look promising. Unfortunately we are going through a period of poor weather. I hope to pick up the imaging soon....

Very interesting and useful article. Clearly a knoll or high spot is an advantage...

 

The image of the kids reminded me of the night I visited Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff Arizona 46 years ago and understood for the first time how ancient starlight is. This project must have been the highlight of their school year.

Dear Brian,

 

Thank you for your kind comments.

 

I have read so much about the great work done in astro research and outreach at Lowell Observatory.  

 

It was indeed a special day for our students, celebrating the opening of the observatory and also hosting friends.
