AR12673 7 Sept 2017 flaring
« on: 11:14:38, 08 September, 2017 »
Had a frustrating, wonderful, exciting and lucky time yesterday morning. I set my scope on the Sun and in particular AR 12673 hoping for some activity. There appeared to be nothing much happening. As the clouds started to come in it started to flare and it was amazing to see things change in real time. Here are some of the images I took. It wasn't possible to make a good animation as the gaps between the images depended on the cloud which at the time were approx 95% and the gaps getting more hazy as time went on. I set my frame rate to be around 150 per sec in order to get 2000 frames per shot.


Megrez 90, NEQ6, Atik 460EX M with Astrodon filters, DMK21 in finder guider, SkyShed POD. Celestron 9.25 for visual.
Software: SGPro with PHD2, Nebulosity4, MaximDL  and PS CS2.
Solar imaging:SkyWatcher ST120 with Daystar Quark Chromosphere, Rowan tilt adapter and ZWO ASI 174MM camera. Software: FireCapture, AS!2, Imppg and PS CS2.
