Sunny Sun

May 29, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I took a bit of time yesterday to head outside and do some experimenting with the solar scope to see if I could eliminate the Newton's Rings.  Long story short, I couldn't.  Brian at KW Telescope suggested I try a few lenses to try to break up the interference pattern, but nothing worked.  I tried a moon filter, and the couple of filters that came with the camera (clear and IR?).  Looks like I'll have to buy a new camera if I want to get rid of them.

That said, I was able to pull some nice images through the high clouds.  Probably my best images of the Sun yet.
