H-alpha Sun – November 11, 2016

Amazingly for this period of the year, with the Sun hanging at only 27-29 degrees above the horizon, I had a few good seeing moments (for this altitude) for some H-alpha and white light imaging.

The equipment: Teleskop Service 115 APO refractor with a Lacerta wedge prism for white light imaging and a 3x barlow, and the Quark chromosphere for the H-alpha images. In both situations I’ve used the ASI 174MM camera.

First, the white light shot, showing the sunspot groups 2608 (left) and 2607 on the limb:
