Mark, excellent job of capturing solar detail along with the Venus in transit. I believe the PST comes with more one kind of narrow band filters. Which wavelength and bandwidth did you use to achieve these results?

Vomit, good picture, but in my opinion you may have benefitted from reducing the exposure time.


My own contribution can be found on Youtube. The link is:

Your comments would be highly appreciated.

The PST has a tuner on it to change wavelengths it isnt a different filter just tuneable.
Thanks for the nice comments on my image.

BTW Nice vodeo on the transit .I would have done one but i didnt have a good alignment to keep things centered so it would have jumped all over the place.
