Ten minutes of Sun!

Posted: June 17, 2012 in Imaging, Sun

But that was just about enough to grab some more pictures through the solar telescope.  Here’s the result:

I found a great page on the Sky & Telescope website with tips for processing these images and I think it paid off with this one.  In particular I corrected the non-uniform illumination which seems to afflict these early images.  Also, I think I’ll try and blend the disk image and ‘edge’ image a bit more smoothly next time.

    That’s VERY impressive Adrian and a distinct improvement over the first test images. Excellent enhancement and really feels like our Sun.
