Imaging processing guide for H-Alpha
« on: 19:45:27, 24 May, 2006 »
One of the best guides I have read has been posted on the Cloudy Nights forums (need to register to get to it), by Paul Hyndman. It is in the Solar forum section. It's a 4MB PDF file, and really really useful. For anyone (including me, I have read it and learnt a lot), interested in getting the best out of their H-Alpha imaging, this is a first class, and well written guide to the scope, the technology, the science and the processing and capture of images

ATB and clear skies (yeah right!...cloud cloud cloud)

...and after a chat with Mr Hyndman, he's agreed to let us link directly to the file from here.

So here's Paul's excellent Solar Ha imaging primer. As Nick said, it's a 4Mb PDF.

That's what astronomy is all about, sharing info, and giving as much back as you can (even if you get in to trouble with the admins sometimes... :-) )



Thanks Nick for chasing it up and linking the PDF

Great guide...it's worth pointing out that a lot of the information there applies generally, not just to solar imaging.

By the way, can anyone tell me what a "hairy limb" means? :lol:

Lots of spiky little prominences that are real close to the solar surface Dave 8-)
