Raising the Standard in Amateur Solar Photography

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on July 10, 2007 and tagged with Sample Images, Mosaic.

The talented astro-photographer and prolific DMK blogger, Oldfield So has again raised the standard in amateur solar photography.

The first of the two images that he recently posted in his blog is a mosaic of the solar limb that he built using eight individual files. He used a DMK 31AF03 FireWire camera, Borg 45ED II, SM40/BF10, with 2x Barlows and an extension tube for the close up work:

The second is a full disc shot, which he captured at 14:52 (GMT+8) from his apartment in Hong Kong.

These images illustrate delightfully the quality, clarity and precision of images that are possible with The Imaging Source astronomy cameras.

Keep up the good work, Oldfield.
