Still an attractive sight in the early morning sky. The Moon will be joining in soon.
From the window-sill.
The inset images are with the 80mm f/5 refractor with 2X X2 barlows and PD camera.
A decent sunspot at last! Here is a transition from White light to H alpha, effectively a journey through the chromosphere. (H alpha sees the chromosphere, white light the lower photosphere) Lunt LS35 THa for the Ha, 80mm f/5 refractor for white light. Both with X2 barlow and Mikrokular full HD camera from indoors window-sill.
All from Baked Bean cans within a 10 mile radius, using Ilford Multigrade B&W paper. Scanned and played with in Photoshop.
Andy’s first one, slightly different angle to his usual version.
And his second – massive amounts of water damage (was still a few mm of rain in the bottom of the can), but love the effect it’s created. This is his usual angle (so can be compared to previous attempts). Can just make out the house bottom right of centre and the tree to the left.
Mine, screwed to the house, SSE facing.
Sister’s from her new home. Was surprised at the very upper sun trace, but it can be matched to my own above. Thought at first it must have moved or have been a reflection from the inside top of the can. The cans are painted black inside and any movement would have created a double image of the houses – there isn’t anything to suggest that.
One I made up for a lady at my new workplace.
