Rainy, sunny and cloudy these days. It sounds funny but it's real, and therefore, if you have to shoot, you need to be patient. Everything taken with my trusty setup consisting of the modified Tele Vue Ranger with a JMI NGF-CM, Coronado Solarmax 40 with BF10, and then tracked by Meade LXD55. With the introduction of the new tube ring, the whole setup is far more stable and much better balance and it is a pleasure to use.
First is a full disc shot taken with the reducer, 1612 (GMT+8):-
Push up the exposure to show the prominence better, 1613 (GMT+8):-
And then I put the Tele Vue Powermate 5x in the optical chain, I believe that I've forgotten to remove the reducer this time.
1616 (GMT+8), this active complex is getting weaker:-
1617 (GMT+8), the small emerging (or dying) active spot:-
1619 (GMT+8), finally, one of those tall prominence:-
Nice day indeed, and when I packed up my stuff, it's totally covered.
