Working with my new monochromatic camera again.
0650 (UT) with 2x barlows:
AR2786 is the biggest one.
My new ASI 290mm arrived a couple of days ago, and this is the officially first light!
AR2785 and AR2786 come out on time to test my new gear, I have been doubting about my Solarmax filters, whether it's dying or rusting or not. Before I sold them, I managed to capture this shot with the aperture partially blocked my the window frame.
Not bad it seems.
The ASI 290mm has a smaller chip than that of the 120mm, even with the reducer in place, I could no longer capture full disc in a single shot, so I simply removed that reducer lens!
The visual view was stunning as well.
A few more shots pending, time to get back to work.
Last switched on time was late March.
Failed to detect my ASI 120mm for the first time, have to re-install the device driver. And then upgrade Sharpcap thinking every will be fine. But then cloud rolled in!
Waited for half an hour or so? Finally managed to take a brief video clip, super poor seeing as below.
An interesting prominence on top, and a tiny active region a bit off the center.
