My Solar Imaging Setup

Telescope: 

Recently, i have been using Lunt 152 Hydrogen Alpha Solar Telescope and it has been showing some really stunning results.

My older Lunt 60 is now dedicated for public solar viewing sessions. 

Mount:

I recently purchased Celestron CGE DX model. It is much more than what i expected.. works like a charm even at high magnifications.

Camera:

'Imaging Source' DMK21 is a great planetary camera. Though it is capable of imaging at 60 frames per second, I almost always shoot at 30 frames per second. 

Barlow:

Televue 2.5X is really a great barlow specially with hygroden alpha telescope. Occasionally i do try Televue 5X balrow for prominences.

Computer:

 I just love me Macbook Pro. Its a 15 inch laptop with i7 processor, came with 8 GB RAM but i changed it with 12 GB to use it efficiently with Parallel Software and Windows 7. From acquisition to processing, everything is done on this machine.
