The Sun at Night

The image below was taken at the University's Bayfordbury Observatory in January by David Campbell  using the Chris Kitchin Telescope and a special filter to emphasis a particular transition of hydrogen.

It's a mosaic of nine images taken with the Tele Vue 102 (4-inch refractor piggybacked in the CKT) and the Lumenera SKYnyx2-1 from the video dome, using the solar H-alpha filter.

It was first broadcast on the Sky at Night on 1st May.
