'White light - Herschel wedge' session 15.01.16

Recommended Posts

Beautiful day, so decided to set up the refractor.

The sunspots regions are numbers 2480 (the larger one) and 2483. Number 2485 is faintly visible on the other side.

Prime focus with the Sony A7s.

Thankyou all.

Nice sometimes to do this hobby without half frozen feet & hands at this time of the year, and get a vitamin D boost at the same time :lol:

 

The Mk V bino is a treat to use when viewing the sun, and one of the reasons i brought the wedge in the first place 

was its compatibility with the Mk V

 

The fainter sunspot group (2485) on the left of the disc was immediately apparant once i'd switched over to the bino, where before in mono mode using the 19 Pan (48x) i hadn't even noticed it.

I'm really looking forward to the Mercury transit event in May.
