Halpha Solar mosaic

Okay so today was my off day from work.. what better way to use your holiday than to spend all day with your dearest one.. (okay okay.. after my wife :)

Sky was all clear and seeing was also very stable. So i attached my barlow lens which magnify the image 2.4 times than the original image. Before the televue, barlow lenses were thought to degrade the view so astronomy community always tended to avoid these lenses. Things have long changed now. Telvue 2.5 X barlow does not even tell you its there.

I shot several AVIs files, each with 5,000 images and processed 800 out of them and made a mosaic.

Here is the color version and original size of the mosaic.
