Colorizing Monochromatic Solar Images

A Simple Yet Effective Solar Image Colorization Tutorial by John W. O'Neal, II

Have you ever wondered how solar imagers get those nice color images of the sun after capturing files with mono cameras?

The Effects of Atmospheric Seeing on Solar Imaging

Atmospheric seeing is an often overlooked, yet critical aspect of solar imaging. Without good seeing, your gear, camera, and even your techniques and skills don’t much matter. So, before we even start thinking about gear, telescopes, cameras, and processing software, etc., we need to discuss this frequently overlooked attribute of solar imaging — we need to discuss seeing.

I presented this at DAYSTAR FILTERS week long Solar Extravaganza (SOLARFEST 2016) in Missourri in August, 2016.

Sudden Ionospheric Disturbance (SID) Receivers

Learn all about SID Receivers and the people who created them...
