Black drop: From the Big Bear Solar Observatory –
Celestron C11 Edge HD F:10 telescope working at primary focus with a Baader ND-5.0 Solar Screen Filter Mylar sheet + ZWO ASI290MM monochrome camera with Continuum Baader green filter from the terrace of his home in Hospitalet del Llobregat (Barcelona/Spain).
The resulting video record was made in black and white. Subsequently and with the use of the public domain program: VirtualDubMod uses various VDF digital filters (plugins) provided by the program to give: false color, improve contrast, noise removal, etc., in order to obtain a single frame in which you can interpret the “black drop.”
