Solar Imaging Session - May 16, 2017

The sky this morning is hazy and seeing condition is again poor. Very hard to image as too many clouds. I just got to shoot through small openings on the cloud today :( The plage still doesn't develop into an active region but showing some flaring activity inside its core. There is also a huge eruptive prominence in the SE limb.

Solar Imaging Session - May 15, 2017

The sky this morning is hazy and seeing condition is poor. I miss the Sun so I force myself to monitor the Sun this morning despite expecting a low solar activity. There is still no sunspot group visible till now and the plage I saw a few days ago which I thought will become an active region didn't materialize :( There are 2 moderate to large size eruptive prominences visible in the NE and SW limb. The rest are small prominences scattered around the solar limb.

Lunar Imaging Session - May 13, 2017

The sky this evening is cloudy and I had a hard time imaging between the holes in the clouds to image the Mare Crisium, Janssen and Tycho Crater Region through poor seeing condition before getting clouded out.

Lunar Imaging Session - May 11, 2017

The sky this evening is very cloudy but I was only able to get a shot off on the Waning Gibbous Moon before I got clouded out as well as roof obstruction :( Image taken using ZWO ASI120MM webcam on Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS L lens set at 350mm f/5.6 .

Solar Imaging Session - May 9, 2017

The sky this morning is slightly hazy but seeing condition is very good. There are 2 huge eruptive and looped prominence visible in the NE limb! Aside from this, the Sun activity is all but quiet specially remnant of AR2655 Sunspot Group.

Solar Imaging Session - May 7, 2017

The sky this morning is clear and seeing condition is good. Not much solar activity on the Sun right now even in Ha wavelength. Prominences are small. AR2654 and 2655 Sunspot Group are starting to quiet down a bit but still shows some solar activity inside its core. Have a great weekend!

Solar Imaging Session - May 5, 2017

The sky this morning is hazy and seeing condition is poor. AR2654 Sunspot Group mellowed down a bit in activity as it get close to the NW limb. New AR2655 Sunspot Group, on the other hand, is small but very active and probably will get even more active in the days to come. There are also 2 nice eruptive prominences int he NW limb.

Solar Imaging Session - May 4, 2017

The sky this morning is very hazy and seeing condition is poor. It was very difficult to lock on focus as the image was shimmering. AR2654 Sunspot Group is growing in length but the umbral structure remains almost the same as before. In Ha wavelength, AR2654 Sunspot Group shows some flaring activity inside its core. There is also a nice large group of eruptive prominences in the NW limb.

Solar Imaging Session - May 3, 2017

The sky this morning is clear and seeing condition very good. AR2654 Sunspot Group has transformed from pore like structure into a moderate size sunspot group! Very active also in the Ha wavelength with some flaring activity inside its core. There is also a huge eruptive prominence in the NW limb as well as some small to moderate size prominence around the solar limb.
