    Here's a critter I found lurking about on the northeast limb this morning.

    Thanks much for the peek.

    Very nice prom! Can you advise the basic steps in processing? Is it done by a specialised computer software? What telescope and camera? Thanks. Mag

    Thanks. I see from your previous posts that you are familiar with DSO AP, so most of the solar process will likely be old-hat. Here goes...

    Scope: Skywatcher 100ED f/9 / Filters: DayStar Quark-Chromosphere & UV/IR-cut / Cam: ASI174-Cool Monochrome

    One thousand frames captured at ten milliseconds with SharpCap 3.0. One hundred frames stacked in AutoStakkert 3.

    Lucy-Richardson convolution (Wavelets) and initial histogram adjustments in Registax6.

    Final tweaks and a slap of color accomplished in PhotoShop CC.

    Very nice image!

    It is really strange and funny that i was asking about solar options cheap without going for dedicated solar scopes and it was like all options are bad or not good and i only have to go with expensive dedicated solar scope, i even asked about that Daystar Quark but still not good enough, they only wanted me to go with H-Alpha dedicated solar scope, and any white light options aren't good or won't give good results, so i don't know if yours isn't good according to their high level standard, i bought Baader solar Continum filter and want to couple it with another item for solar to be used with my refractor or Mak or Newt or DSLR lenses, they told me about solar film filter but they aren't satisfied with white light, i asked about Solar Wedge, also not good, this Quark, still not enough, so only want me to save and buy H-alpha best solar scope while i can't afford it yet.
