Solar from today 13.08.2017

Recommended Posts


Finally got a break in the clouds this morning.

Unfortunately not a great deal of action going on.


60mm double stacked Lunt.

Blackfly camera.

Captured in Firecapture.


Taken advice from Steve and reduced the number of frames to 1000.

Stacked in Registax 5 at a quality setting of 95% to reduce the stack size down even further.

Total number of frames stacked 172.

After advice from both Steve and Mike I reduced my use of wavelets to a barest minimum to keep from over sharpening it.

Quick touch up in PS 6 using the shadows and highlights function.

I didn't bring anything to the party other than an opinion, Steve's the Sol whisperer, but you're welcome ? keep up the good work.
