Calci-Yummy Closeup - 30th June

Despite being the hottest day of the year (so far!), the last day of june had some of the best seeing conditions i've come across this year, well certainly at 6.30am.  The live image was rock steady and etched on the screen with detail, a rare sight to see, especially at 393nm.  This shot was taken with the ED60 at 1950mm focal length with stacked barlows, the homebrew CaK filter and the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 camera.  Click on the image to view in the lightbox viewer as it looks much better when viewed full size!
