Greetings all! I captured a few frames of the sun this morning with my Coronado SolarMax II 60mm scope in single and double-stack mode. Very active down around the newer sunspot! This is very minimal processing, just stacked in Autostakkert and using the already-sharpened output file. I'll probably dig around later and see if I can find some frames with the entire proms intact, but I just wanted to share. Happy Thanksgiving!

Great captures Austin!

 

Happy Thanksgiving! Can't have the food we have without good old sol's radiation! Heck, Thanksgiving really is a celebration of the sun itself since it's ultimately the great provider of everything and the driver of our evolution from the soup!

 

Very best,
