F-CHROMA: Solar observations needed 19-27 September 2015

For those who can't decide if there's not enough day, or not enough night!

*** WARNING ***

Do not EVER look directly at the Sun through a telescope or in any other way, unless you have the proper filters and have been educated in their proper use. This can cause INSTANT eye damage, and remember, you only get ONE pair of eyes!

Hello Solar Observers,

F-CHROMA is a research project that focuses on understanding the physics of the solar chromosphere during flares. A part of the project is an observing campaign involving amateur astronomers.

Simultaneous observations by several ground-based and orbital observatories are planned between 19 and 27 September 2015. Amateur images taken in this period are highly requested. Data from small telescopes can provide wider field of view, fill data gaps and be used for comparison with professional observations. H-alpha, Ca-K, Solar Continuum and white light images are welcome. Astronomical cameras as well as DSLRs with RAW mode are suitable.

More information on technical details (including imaging tutorial) and how to get involved in observing campaign can be found on our website: http://fchroma.astro.uni.wroc.pl/index. ... nters.html. Please don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter or you will miss observing targets and other important information during the campaign.
