Our sun is still an interesting place to view!

I took this image through the clubs new Quark Hydrogen Alpha (Ha) eyepiece last Friday mid afternoon (14/7/18), seeing was quite good. The combination of camera/eyepiece/telescope results in a small field of view, but one where the details of the solar chromosphere are revealed very nicely. The image was taken in monochrome and coloured to match the Ha colour..We are looking at an area where bundles of magnetic fields lines are concentrated.

We will have the eyepiece, and other solar viewing equipment in use at the Gibsons Art Gallery next Saturday for our meet and greet with Erwin. Come by and take a look at his images and the sun!
