In the previous blog posting I posted a question: how will spicules and prominences appear at the solar limb? I am using a color scheme that arranges the most detuned image as red, medium detuned as green and not-detuned as blue. When seen in silhouette against the photosphere spicules and filaments are revealed by their absorption of H-α light. They look dark in H-α images and since this is blue in my color scheme they will appear reddish. When seen against the blackness of space these same features are revealed by their emission of H-α light - and appear bright in the blue (H-α) channel. Check it out for yourself below!
I had a hard day at work and blogged too late into the night yesterday, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow for the next posting where I will discuss acquisition aspects of tri-band imaging.
