The year 2020 is nearly over, and the sun is waking from its slumber. Here are a few shots aquired during Decmeber 2020.
Obviously to view, or snap piccies of the sun, mandatory and necessary filtering is required. the filtering used for these are specialised Ha Solar Filters. It is a filter that blocks about 95% of the suns glarey light and then also filters a specific frequency of light so that only a particluar wavelength passes through to the camera. 656nm to be exact.
This tunes in very closely to the effects of burning hydrogen.
Primarily what the sun does.
