These have been very active crackling with both M and X class flares. If you have a solar telescope now is the time to take a look and see our star at it's most fiery!

Still not got the clocking 100% correct on this etalon setup but are not too far off. This setup makes for a nice detalied grab and go portable bit of kit!

Ha Full Disk - 2nd April

Clocked-Ha-DS50-colour I continue to be impressed with the DS50 setup, lots of detail, just in the process of dialling in the best tuning for it. The contrast and transmission are both high with this setup.
