I usually never take solar images in the afternoon, but, I guess, never say never :)
Need to solve some edge blending/processing techniques in CS6 (cool upgrade) ..... but the results look promising.

Beautiful, and I guess a mosaic too?

Yep. My standard run is 12 fields (AP155 with barlow). Need a bigger/faster chip. :rolleyes:

Ahh thats why you didnt answer your phone - lovely image Peter. That prom on the right is huge and the complex coming over the horizon top left looks pretty special. very fine detail!

Lovely. I am loving the way you getting more three dimensionality to your images now. I am waiting patiently for the new lunt scope ;) but cannot do any imaging until the grey stuff goes away.
Great colour too. Maybe just a little more golden?
I take it you are using a 3x which I have considered using, but have some concern about the Newton rings.

Thanks David..will call you tomorrow
Ah...the colour! It was simply an artifact of my using a monitor calibrated to Adobe RGB... but not publishing to the web in a more universal format :doh:
Still looks the same on my monitor...but the world at large should see a closer facsimile.
I use a AP 2" barlow or Baader FFC (depending on how much FL can be used with available seeing). Interference rings have *never* been a problem with my Skynyx 2-2...just wish the chip was bigger.

Wonderful image Peter !
