CaK Animations - 17th April

A couple of animations taken with the 100mm Tal100R refractor, 2000mm fl for the upper image, 1400mm fl for the lower image.  These are near perfect image scale for the 3.45um pixels of the PGR Chameleon 3 camera, and with it large 2048x1536 pixel chip makes it easy to crop out regions like this and still get good image scale.  There are some really quite interesting movements of plasma when you start looking at the animations carefully.
