The sun is putting up quite a display this morning. Tho, the seeing conditions are dreadful, can’t get almost any worse than this. ( 2 / 10 or so )
I almost gave up trying to image, due it being almost impossible getting any focus. So after getting a bunch of mediocre avi’s, I tried to stack and process them as best as I could.
As the view through the Eyepiece was so impressive, only through stiching the stacked images together would do this view justice.
So today, I tried my first attempt at stiching in Photoshop. It took some effort, as the image brightness was not the same of each stacked image, so took some teeth grinding in Photoshop to correct it as best as possible.
SW Esprit 120 + Quark Chromosphere + TS 0.5 reducer + QHY5L-IIc . Two seperate AVI’s Stacked in Autostakkert, two images stiched and processed in Photoshop to produce this Panoroma splendour of the Sun’s Eastern limb. Zoom out for full size. Enjoy!
