Snake Valley Easter Solar

Here is my somewhat dodgy attempt at imaging with the 60mm double stack Lunt I recently acquired. This was done this Easter weekend while I was up at the Snake Valley site at a non astro event.

Details are

Scope: Lunt LS60THa w 1200 blocking filter and LS50FHa Double Stack filter
Camera Imaging Source DMK51
Mount: Saxon EQ2 wobbletronic
Original video was 30s but unfortunately I forgot to record the exposure details (forgive me, I usually do visual and was so exciting to even get an image)
Processed in Registax 6 and PS CS5.
It may be a bit red but I was trying to replicate the view through the scope so that's what ya get!!

Nice Malcolm.

The red is a nice touch as sometimes it's nice to be reminded of the visual view.

Nice one Malcom, the DS LS60 is a great scope, interesting comment about the visual colour, I see it bright orange visually through all my Ha scopes, never seen it as red.
