Solar Observing Session May 19, 2017 - Picture 3

Sony a6000 with a 2x tele-extender at the prime focus of Brian Colville's double stacked Lunt 80mm solar scope. 
Exposure was 1/25s @ ISO1600

The  red channel is reduced and the green channel enhanced to show the chromosphere and prominences more clearly.

Solar Observing Session May 19, 2017 - Picture 4

Sony a6000 with a 2x tele-extender at the prime focus of Brian Colville's double stacked Lunt 80mm solar scope. 
Exposure was 1/25s @ ISO1600

Similar to Solar Observing May 19, 2017 - Picture 3, except cropped to expand the  detail in the chromasphere and in the prominences.

Sony a6000 with a 2x tele-extender at the prime focus of Brian Colville's double stacked Lunt 80mm solar scope. 
Exposure was 1/25s @ ISO1600

Is similar toSolar Observing Session May 19, 2017 - Picture 2 except with red channel enhanced to show fainter detail in the prominences

Solar Observing Session May 19, 2017 - Picture 6

Sony a6000 with a 2x tele-extender at the prime focus of Brian Colville's double stacked Lunt 80mm solar scope. 
Exposure was 1/25s @ ISO1600

The red and green colour channels were adjusted to give greater contrast in the filaments and granulation in the surface detail 
and the result converted to monochrome.

Image was taken on July 30, 2013 with a solar scope 100 with a triplett ha lens.
This allows extreme close up detail where needed. Post processing
was about 4 hrs using CX2-ep and PS5cs.

This solar image was taken from the Nutwood 
Observatory using a modified tech 140 and also 
modified canon DLSR.
 
The  regular granular solar events show up 
nicely all over the sun, but to-day was an 
event for all astronomers to see the large 
black spot facing us. This taken on 
June 16th 2012.
