Hi all:

 

I only had a couple of minutes yesterday morning (and it was Cold, 4 deg. C !), so I grabbed my wedge and captured what I could before starting my spring chores! (busy weekend!). I did my processing this morning. 

 

The seeing was better than I thought, with the plage clearly visible with good definition of the umbra and penumbra.

The area was still relatively close to the limb and I think I've got a bit of the Wilson effect happening.

 

Baader Solar Continuum filter, 100 of 500 frms @ 70-80 fps. As!3, and Photoshop only.

As I said I only had a few minutes, but I grabbed my Antares 2x Barlow and zoomed in a bit in post.

The light bridge is visible and there are some nice rings around both the umbras and penumbras.

(Pardon the dust bunnies, it was cold and I was rushing a bit!)

 

Baader Solar Continuum filter, 200 of 1000 frms @ 90-100 fps. (ROI reduced), As!3, and Photoshop only.

And now I must be off, my lawn is calling me.grin.gif

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Cheers

The only advice I can give you, if your Continuum filter is a few years old you should combine a uv / ir cut filter.
This way you increase the contrast and improve the details.
If the Baader Continuum filter is recent it should have this filter integrated, and therefore nothing else is needed.

Thanks Lorenzo.

Good point. I normally have my UV/IR cut attached to my SC for visual and when I transfer from my eyepiece to my camera I remove it. (Not sure why I do this scratchhead2.gif , go figure).

I bought my SC filter within the last 2 years but other than the info on the case there does not appear to be any other spectral information to indicate what is being cut. I'll try leaving my existing UV\IR on the next time, hopefully when it finally warms up!

Thanks for the tip. waytogo.gif

Nice catches Phil!

Thanks Warren!

Both Meteoblue and Astrospheric told me my seeing was crappy, but I thought I'd try. It pays just to get your butt outside and look.

 

Cheers
