Astronomy and Solar hydrogen alpha, Solar Wedge, Calcium K, K line, White Light
Tuesday, May 24, 2016
After years of nighttime astronomy with countless sleepless nights due to long viewing times, I wanted to explore what options were available to me for daytime. I discovered Solar viewing and then later after purchasing a solar telescope, imaging was a very addictive endeavor.
I had been thinking about taking up solar observing last year and did eventually make a purchase for a Lunt Solar Telescope with the Double Stack Module. It has taken almost 8 months to become familiar with the entire process from setup to post-processing the images. I currently do white Light using Lunt and Badder Solar Wedges, H-Alpha using a Lunt Telescope and will later this year do some Calcium wavelengths. I hope you enjoy the images. Although it may appear not too impressive, these images take a lot of effort and time to acquire. So, If you want to take things further yourself and learn how to image the Sun then explore the many articles that take you through some imaging tips here on the TrueToad. Finally, to wet your appetite I will be sharing a few imaging tricks here to get your images looking fantastic! It’s not easy but it is fun and addictive.
