Solar Observing Campaign 2022

Latest observations added at the top.

Images taken with Lunt LS60 or Lunt LS100 in single stack or double stack mode as indicated near the image. Using native focal length for full disk and 2/5x or 3x Barlow lens for prominence and surface detail.
Recording with ASI174. Typically 10% to 20% of 750 / 1000 / 2000 / 5000 frames stacked in AutoStakkert!3 wavelet sharpening in Registax 6 and finishing in Photoshop CS2.
Time-lapse videos with Python script and ffmpeg.

2022-01-09 18:38UT We are starting the 2022 solar observing campaign. The day had clear skies, but only average seeing conditions. We start with a full disk composite of exposures for surface detail and prominences.

2022-01-09 18:55UT to 19:39UT We follow with a few prominences details picked up with the 3x TV Barlow. The seeing really was not good enough to support this magnification.

2022-01-09 19:32UT A surface detail with the 3x Barlow.
