Sun - 9.6.2023 at 11.15 Tampere Observation number 116589

Visibility IV / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

The cloud fine didn't hit this time when I got the new camera in my hands.
It is known that a color camera is not the best choice for solar photography, but the intention is to use the camera for other purposes as well, and the choice was also influenced by the increased surface area and number of pixels.
The sun fit comfortably on the cell with the Lunt solar tube, even though 1.5X barlow glass was also used.
This still needs some practice, but it looks reasonably promising.

Edit: in the afternoon I made a small training animation of the most spectacular prot. And I changed the main image to a slightly better version.

Hieno on tuo animaatio. Eipä välttämättä heti tulisi mieleen, mihin nykyään pystyy harrastaja-tason välineillä!
