What a diiference a filter makes!1139 viewsHere is the Sun taken on 10/3/11 at 11:15 AM first in White light (left) and Calcium K (right) using a Stellarvue 80ED. The white light image shows a few sunspot groups while the CaK image shows much more detail and areas of increased magnetic activity. AR1302 is on the far right, nearly rotating out of view. The white light image was taken using an Orion glass filter and single snapshot from a Canon T2i. The CaK image was taken with an Imaging Source camera and Lunt B1200 CaK filter.
More Calcium-K852 viewsThis image from Jan 17,2012 shows active regions 1401/1402 in Calcium K (393.4 nanometers) as they rotated into view. This region recently threw off a coronal mass ejection (CME) that impacted Earth's magnetic field on Jan 22, 2012 creating auroras at the northern latitudes. To learn more about space weather and its impact to us on Earth, go to our AAG Classroom page and watch the video on space weather. Imaged at f14 using a Stellarvue SV80ED, Lunt B1200 CaK filter and Imaging Source camera.
The Sun in Ha1145 viewsThis is the first light image of the sun taken with my new Lunt 80mm solar scope on Friday 2/24/2012. We used Jim's DMK 41 camera and processed the image in Registax and Photoshop CS5.
Venus Transit - Calcium K1351 viewsThe AAG and Oliver Lee State Park hosted a Venus transit event on 6/5/2012 to witness this "once in a lifetime event". This photo was taken using a Stellaruve SV80ED refractor, a Lunt B1200 Calcium-K module and Imaging Source DMK41AU02 camera at the event. Venus and Earth are roughly the same size- so this gives a good approximation of the size of the Sun compared to the Earth. Multiple sunspot regions also speckle the image. The AAG also had white light and hydrrogen-alpha telescopes for the crowd to witness the event.
Super Sunspot AR17461202 viewsSunpots are cooler regions in the photosphere where the magnetic field pops through and cools the surrounding plasma. The latest large sunspot rotated into view on May 5 and is the largest since 2003. Active Region (AR) 1476 spans about 160,000 km (100,000 miles) in this image. Image taken on 5/11/2012 using a 90mm refractor at f30, Lunt solar wedge and 532nm filter with a DMK41AU02 camera. See live images of the Sun on our "PLANETS" page.
Solar Upheaval838 viewsThe last few weeks have seen the emergence of several large sunspots as solar maximum peaks. Active Region 1967 is wider than the planet Jupiter and its primary dark cores are big enough to swallow Earth many times over. This image was taken in Calcium-K (393.4 nm) from Alamogordo, NM using a 90mm refractor at f20, and Lunt B1200 Cak module and Imaging Source 41AU02 camera.
Mercury Transit 2016620 viewsThe Mercury transit was well underway when this image was taken at 8:17 AM MT on 5/9/2016 from the AAG outreach event at Imago Dei Academy in Alamogordo, NM. The image was taken using a Stellaruve 80ED refractor with a Lunt B1200 Calcium-K module and Imaging Source 41AU02 camera. The Calcium K-line (393.4 nm) shows supergranulation in the lower chromosphere (~1200 km) along with lighter regions indicating magnetic activity. Sunspot AR2542 along with the small disk of Mercury are also visible.
