Sun, May 21, reprocessed and inverted

    Newer Older

    I like the whole inverted-sun thing. Somehow it looks even more imposing and frightening.

    Telescope = Lunt LS60HaDS50/B1200
    Camera = DMK21AU618
    Mount = EQ6 Pro
    Software = capture in ICCapture, stacking in AutoStakkert 2, mosaic in Photoshop CS5
    Mosaic = 5 images (4 corners and one for the center overlap region)
    Date = 21/05/2012
    Beverage = Hop City Barking Squirrel lager

      ha ha i have occasionally included a beer as part of the processing description and no one noticed!

      this is really cool. what is the bandwidth of this telescope?

      Many thanks guys for the compliments! I see you guys noticed the beer too. :)

      Erik: I agree, somehow the shadow cast gives a more 3D effect.

      pfile: This is a double-stacked Lunt setup, so the bandpass is approx <0.50 Angstroms.

      One day on planet Earth 24 hours,,,, On Mercury!?? Each day on Mercury lasts as long as 58 days, 15 hours on Earth. for Neptune is much shorter than Earth's, about 16 ... many days in one of Neptune years but one of Neptune's days is 16 hours and ... A day on Uranus is 17 hours, 14 minutes and 24 seconds. ... GOD Created The World In 7 Days....... But GOD Is Talking,.,.,Also how long is a day By GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????

      Thanks Gabe!

      onyxone1: Hop City is a great little microbrewery from suburban Toronto. Their Barking Squirrel lager is awesome, a bit on the sweet side so good for a hot sunny afternoon of solar imaging.

      Farshad: Wow. I'm not sure what to say ... thanks!

      Denis: Thanks for the good words, much appreciated.
