So after getting some suggestions from a few users over at the Cloudy Nights forums, I reworked the same data set with greatly improved results. Practice!
First light with the new solar scope. This was imaged with an inexpensive 2x Barlow, so I’m curious if some of the fringing is from that or user error. I’d like to practice again when it cools off some. As soon as I set up, the clouds started rolling in. LOL.
