Here’s the reason I’ m always banging on the drum when I talk to the group about safety when viewing the sun.

We were working over at the obsy today when this amazing rainbow appeared. The photo was taken with iPhone 7 in panoramic mode. This photo hasn’t been modified at all!
Well, it was a very cold night but great fun, with loads of people taking part. I managed to get some quite pretty Orion shots.
Setup was SW 102 F5 refractor with a T2 to 2″ adaptor containing a 2″ Optolong UHC filter connected to an EOS 750D camera. This is the processing of the first of 3 sets of subs that I took. I like the colours. The pictures of the scopes were taken with iPhone 7 and NightCap app
I enjoyed the evening and it was nice to see some many members, and non-members involved
I’m selling a nice little netbook if anyone’s interested.
The Spec is as follows:-
10.1″ display . 1024 x 600 resolution
148GB hard drive
1.33GHz Dual Core AMD CPU
2GB RAM (upgradeable to 4GB with Windows 7 64 bit, or Windows 10
Currently has Windows 7 64-bit installed, along with Sharpcap. It will happily run Sharpcap, iSpy, Stellarium etc. Obviourly it won’t handle much post-processing work, or rather it will but you’d have plenty of time to go and make a cup of tea. I was going to fit a SSD but I’ve bought another netbook
3 USB 2.0 ports
1 HDMI port
1 VGA connector
I’m asking £50 for it
I’ll bring it along to RAG on Friday
Second attempt at processing some of the recent data from the last sunspot. For some reason, this PNG file looks blurred on here
I’m looking at a really promising bit of software for DSLR control via pc (like an intervalometer). And it’s FREE 👍. Have a look at http://digicamcontrol.com/doc/basics/featurelist. I’ll let you know how it goes
*Update – sharpened the picture very slightly in PS ***
Last night was pretty clear for a while so I thought I’d do some prep work so I could get some good images of tonight’s Supermoon (21st March).
Well, as we can all see outside, that’s not going to happen (100% cloud here)
Anyway I got this nice one last night, with the SW 102 and the ZWO 174 camera, stacked in Registax 6 and tweaked slightly in PS
