Saturdays CaK Closeups 29th March

It was rather hazy yesterday, and the haze was also fairly fast moving which also then made the transparency variable to say the least.  However I was keen to try out the 100mm Tal refractor as had just fitted my new Moonlite focuser to it; this is a massive improvement on the stock focuser that comes with this telescope.  I'm still getting a ghost image with this telescope which overlays the disk partially which is frustrating.  I had originally thought this was from the beloptik tri-band ERF I was using internally in the scope, but this is clearly not the case as these images were taken using the Lunt solar wedge as the ERF.  It must be a result of how I have the filters ordered in the stack.  Something for me to ponder!!
