SUN H-alpha (PST- Istar 150 mm)

SUN H-alpha (PST- Istar 150 mm)

Life on Earth can be expensive, but it includes a free trip around the Sun every year.

 

UPPER LEVEL CHROMOSPHERE   (false color & monochrome)
Centered on 656.28 nm H-alpha Line (C)

 

 

NEVER try to observe the Sun through any optical instrument that has not been properly equipped with a special device for SAFE solar viewing. NEVER look at the Sun with the naked eye unless you look through a solar filter that is proven and specifically designed for such purposes. Even the briefest exposure to unfiltered sunlight can damage your sight permanently. In this activity it is sufficient that a single incident happens to bear irreparable damage to our sight: therefore, we must be cautious and never take anything for granted.
