Observe the sun with vespera

Vespera is not only at night. Observe the sun during the sunny day.
To observe the sun, "Vespera Solar Filter" (PurchaseHere) Is required. By attaching the "Vespera solar filter", only one -tenth of the solar radiation will be transmitted, and this will allow some of the phenomena of the solar surface to observe the device and eyes. I can. Make sure that the Singularity app is the latest version. Start the app, select the observation location, and select "solar mode" on the "Space Center" screen. Then follow the instructions on the screen.

After attaching the solar filter to the observation station, select "solar mode" from the space center tab.

Since solar observation is conducted during the day, there are visible stars required for astrometry (Vespera to calibrate the position of the sky) and initialize as at night. plug. Therefore, in the solar observation, the user needs to turn Vespera as accurately as possible to the sun.
This can be easily done by checking the shadow of the Vespera reflected on the ground. First, try turning the vespera. When the sunlight passes through the gap between the lens barrel arm and the main body, the Vespera is installed correctly for the sun. After that, Vespera takes over and scan, accurately pointing out the sun and tracking.

Left: Vespera is not properly positioned. Right: Vespera is correctly aligned: sunlight is in the gap between the vespera arm and the body.

VESPERA will show the relative size of various planets and stars around the sun if the sunlight in the daytime can be interrupted. To get an image for various other experiments, select the "RAW image" of the sun.

You can observe the sun as if you were on another planet in the solar system, or to perform various experiments on black points and sun rotation by selecting RAW images.

Never look directly at the sun for optical devices without a specific protective filter. If the Vaonis Vespera solar filter is not installed, do not turn Vespera to the sun.
