My Solar Imaging for Sept 19 2015

Lunt Badder & Calcium K

Feeling lucky, I dragged out my 150lbs of equipment and established a solar viewing area at the corner of my yard. My two cats came out to join in the fun but did not participate in the setup.   

I was generally hesitant to due to what I saw in the sky but I also understand that as the sun comes over head it's power will sometimes dissipate clouds. Thus by the time I was setup and ready for shooting it was already 10:30.  I was also excited to try my new filter holder for the Badder Calcium K-line but was soon disappointed again when the flange of the outer adapter would not fit inside the wedge about 1mm too large; oh well, the hunt continues. I just reverted to my workaround using a foam insert.

The images are not all that spectacular, one solar flare using the Lunt LS80THa double stacked and a couple of sun spots visible using the Baader Continuum and Calcium K-Line.

I am still not 100% sold on the K-Line but I hold my final determination until I have the filter mounting issue solved.
