Here's an image I captured of the Sun on ... I think it was Sept 7.

Captured using a Lunt 80mm double-stack with ZWO ASI174MM-Cool. Stacked in AutoStakkert3 then processed a bit in PixInsight (to bring out the proms) and a bit in Photoshop (a little more tweaking and also to convert the monochrome data into RGB so I could color it orange.

A very frustrating day today. Trying to image the sun and Clear Outside and Astrospherics both said it was totally clear to at most 22% cloud covered, was I going to believe them or my lying eyes? The sky was 90% cloud covered and worse they were very fast moving.
To top it off, my neighbors peach tree, which has never gotten peaches on it, has grown and now covers the ecliptic in the morning so that the sun comes out from behind one tree about 9 am and then goes behind the top of the peach tree at 9:20 and then comes out again at 10:30 and I have the sun until 12:30. However 2 hours is plenty of time for me to get some images but not during the best time of the day when the air is still.
The few clear spots I got were each about 3 seconds long at most.
Here is what I was able to capture.
Lunt 102ED, Quark Chromosphere, ZWO ASI174mm
500 frames proms, 1000 frames surface, 50 of each stacked

You mustn't disparage the weather bureau. I'll wager that *somewhere* was *precisely* 22% cloud cover. It must have been your fault for standing in the wrong spot. :lol:

Gorgeous image!!!

I took my LS80 out today to do the sun. I have been using the Quark and actually like it a bit better although the LS80 seems more on band.

Here are two shots, the first is just the surface and then I tried to add the proms. not much in the way of proms at the time

I also tried it by shooting the proms separately and combining

Throwback Thursday, well Saturday.

Back in 2016 at pretty much the height of Cycle 24 the sun was much more active, we are heading there again.

Taken with my Lunt LS50 Oct 5 2016
