I believe in 1858 or 1859 it was a Carrington event, fried all electronics i.e. telegraph, today it would wipe out the electric grid, no electricity no gas no credit cards no cell phones no atms we would be back in the stone ages BUT GOOD DARK SKIES!

I tried to get shots of the few proms today but either I am doing it wrong or they were very light. Tried for an hour and gave up. Did AR 2759 again this time with my Celestron 120mm F/8.3 with the Quark for an effect 4200mm focal length


100 frames stacked of a 2000 frame file.

today is just as windy but it clouded over 100%

I have 4 scopes I use for solar, plus an Lunt LS80. with these I tried the Skywatcher 100mm f/9 it is a darker image, i.e. slower fps, only about 8 fps vs 25-30 with my 120 or the 80's

biggest problem is the lack of activity due to the minimum

another image of AR2759 taken only 5 minutes after the first one, you can see by looking back a couple posts how the surface changed

Some have said the minimum could be affecting vit D levels in us humans at the moment, it so important to our immune systems.

P.


Some stuff.

There's two AR's currently on the disc, a cycle 24 AR and a cycle 25 AR, so we're still mixing around in the minimum between the cycles and cycle 24 is not officially over yet. Really interesting to see the two polarities showing opposites despite being so close to each other. Images gathered showing the structures in the photosphere and chromosphere in HA, CaK & full spectrum white light (red really).

Nice set. I see you are burning both ends of the candle with these Solar shots and the Lunar post in the other thread.;-)a

Got out yesterday to try to image AR2762 even though there was a high thin layer of clouds. did ok not great.

May 1 2020,

The two cycle AR's remain, but are rounding the limb as we lose sight of AR2761 (cycle 25) but AR2760 remains (cycle 24). A really lovely prominence on the southern limb has a detached portion.

What programs are you using to process your stuff? Also I get the "orange" on the plasma but the surface of the sun I always end up with white not yellow like you get, how do you due that.

Can you provide evidence confirming that "they changed the modeling so that they could show the sun doesn't affect global temps, along with water vapor and clouds, and it is only man who affects it"?


There are many answers to question.
