Observations Calcium K & H alpha

Having received my new 5 angstrom Daystar Calcium K line filter, and rigged up the Vixen 80mm refractor bought specially for this application I have manged to do a little side by side work. I do hope to do more, and I know I have a lot to learn to get the best out of the system.

Here are the first comparison images I have obtained with this new filter.

This technique allows you to see what is happening at the the different heights of the solar surface and atmosphere
