My backyard observatory 'Maple Ridge Observatory' located near Cambray, ON Canada
These images were taken over the noon hour (EDT)on October 26th...AR
1029 is a nice treat to view and image.
The images were taken with my usual setup...full disk images through a William
Optics 70mm scope (430mm focal length) and the close ups with the Celestron C102
(1,000mm focal length). The white light image uses a Baader solar film, the Ha
use a Lunt LS50FHa/B1200 filter set, and the CaK are through the Lunt CaK B1200
module. All images were captured with a Lumenera Infinity 2-1M camera,
controlled with Lucam Recorder amd processed with Registax.
I have posted each individual image since Photoshop is acting up and I cannot
easily put composits together.
Also, I had to fight cloud during the last image (the Ha shot through the longer
focal length) and it turns out I was looking through the branches of a tree at
the last as well, so the Ha closeup is only the result of about 40 good frames.
I hope everyone is getting a chance to explore this active region.
