The solar disk is a stacked composite of 10000 images and the prominence is a composite of 1000 images taken with the 80mm Lunt Solar Scope and a video cam at 8 frames per second.

This was taken today with the Lunt 80mm solar telescope. The best of 10000 images were stacked. They were taken with a video cam at a rate of 8/second.
Both images were imaged with a Lunt 80mm solar scope and an Imaging Source camera at 30 FPS. The first image was magnified an additional 2.5x with a Barlow lens. Ten thousand images were taken in each case and the best 20% were stacked. The images were captured with IC Capture, stacked in Autostakkert, sharpenedContinue reading “Solar 05/23/2016”
Mercury Transit in Greyscale
All of the images were taken with an 80mm Lunt Solar Telescope and an Imaging Source video camera. The image at the bottom was a composite of 25 of the best images out of 100 and had no further magnification. The second image was a composite of 50 of the best images out of 200Continue reading “Mercury Transit”
A Televue 5x Barlow was used to magnify this image from a double stacked Lunt 80mm solar telescope. The best of 2500 images were stacked.
This is a stacked composite of the best of 2500 images using an Imaging Source video camera and a double stacked 80mm Lunt Solar telescope.
Sunrise With A Lens Flare
This was taken through the Astro-Physics 130mm refractor using a Lunt Herschel wedge and an Imaging Source video camera. The Lunt wedge produces a white light image which was converted to something resembling an H-Alpha reddish tone. I have never tried this configuration before and was a little surprised at the amount of detail inContinue reading “Solar 03/29/2016”
As in the other solar photo taken today, this was taken through the Lunt 80mm solar scope in “double stack” mode for enhanced definition. In this case 2000 images were stacked to form the final image.
