This morning I moved from the first floor balcony to the garden for the solar shots.

In the photo the telescope mounted the Herschel prism ...
So I started earlier than usual, around 9 am, while when I'm on the balcony I always have to wait because I don't see the sun.
As I started shooting I noticed how the turbulence was slightly better than usual, perhaps because the air hadn't warmed up yet.
After a couple of hours the clouds also arrived, luckily I had finished.
I tried to mount the Baader 35nm filter on a 60mm extension, so as to move it away from the nose of the diagonal and make it fit more inside the telescope.
In this way the filter should work with a larger diameter cone of light, so that it can heat up less.
At least in theory.

 

Acro refractor ES 127mm
Baader h-alpha 35nm filter
Telecentric Barlow TS 5x
Daystar Combo Quark Chromosphere
GSO 0.5 reducer
ZWO ASI 178mm
Autostakkert and AstroSurface processing

Really nice prominence shots. The sun is a great star to study and I enjoy Ha shots. Great work.

Thank you all.
I have to say that this time the Quark worked great.
It must also have been thanks to the more contained turbulence ...

Thank you,
I'm glad the coloring is appreciated.
It's not realistic at all, but my images have no scientific pretensions after all.
