Sun from te 25th May

Here is the best image I have manged so far of the Sun.

White light image taken with a Skywatcher ST-80 on my CG-5, about 750/1000 frames on a QHY5L-II

Preprocessed with PIPP and stacked/processed in Registax 6 and coloured up in PS Elements.

Can't quiet get a full disk with setup but was suprised how good the ST-80 is, only picked it up to use as guide scope in the furture.

That's an excellent shot, really clear and sharp. A couple more like that and you could have done a mosaic. :)

I can get a full lunar or solar disc with my SPC880 and ST80.
How can I be at one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it actually is?

HI, not sure how you mange that, tried again today as first sign on the sun - with both QHY5L-II and my modded MS Lifecam I can't get a full disc.

This is todays

I also did a mosaic by taking two vids of the top/bottom and combining then - more tricky than I thought.

Lovely shots. I've tried stitching/stacking partial disc shots but it doesn't always give the results I've hoped for.

Thanks, was a tricky thing to try and get right and not sure I managed it as lost some definition in the spots - just had another go and this is the result.
