Solar System Images 2017(Updated 5/17/18)


The Sun with one sunspot.  Meade 4" SCT with a Thousand Oaks solar filter using a Canon 60Da at 400 ISO and 1/640 exposure.


The lone sunspot from the other day now has company.  I used the same equipment as above, but processed it in a gray scale to show the sunspots better.


Today's Sun taken with a Lunt 80 mm Solar Scope and a ZWO ASI120MC-S camera.

Moon 4/4/17 taken through my Meade 4 inch with a Canon 60 Da.  Astack of 5 exp.

Sunspot cluster on 4/2/17.  Taken through a Lunt 80mm Ha scope with a ZWO ASI120mm-S camera.


Comet Johnson 7th magnitude.  One 90 sec exposure with a Canon 60Da, ISO of 1600 and a StellarVue 130mm f5.6 refractor.

Small Gif of the movement of Comet Johnson over a span of 9 minutes.  Three exposures of 90 secs each and a dark frame of equal length for each.  You may have to watch more than once because it is so short.  I wasn't thinking of doing this when I took the images­čśÇ.
