The Sun


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Lunt 35mm Ha Telescope, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount and DMK41 mono camera.

Trying out my latest astronomy internet impulse buy. Always plenty of flashy equipment on the internet to tempt me.

Lots of detail visible such as prominences, flares, filaments, sunspots and plages.

Lunt 35mm has a large field of view so easy to produce a full disk image. No need for mosaics.

Done a lot of planetary webcam imaging so picked up this sun imaging quickly.

150 seconds at 1/909 exposure and 30 seconds at 1/76 exposure for the prominences.
