Howdy All,

 

Well I am so far our of practice with weeks of constant lows and rain. Now a week of Sun, but seeing this morning was fairly ordinary according to Skippy Sky about 6/10, some very light cloud that didn't help.  

 

Anyways, here's my contribution on this super looping prom, about 15minutes worth. I still have about 100gig data to look at. Clearly I have to relearn all I have forgotten, but it's all written down!

Thanks for looking.

G'day Roberto, and thank you very much for your encouraging reply. It's been a hard few weeks with none to little morning Sun to image... so much for OZ sunshine!  Well to be fair, I can only do images Monday -Thursday mornings to about 10am, grandkids, work commitments and it was rainy season. Today and the rest of the week are looking Bonza, Bewdy, Mate! (that's Great in OZ hehe) so will see what I have forgotten.

 

I used a single stack Lunt 60, ZWO174mm, Powermate 2.5X on my CG5 mount.  I'm still very green to anything Astro closer than the LMC, so have a lot of learning to do, but wow couldn't ask for a better bunch of people  on CN Solar to Sticky Beak on!

Nice work! That animation is pretty smoothly processed, and the image is nicely detailed too.
