I only attempted to download one, but didn't have a problem.

If it weren't 40 Mb I would e-mail it to you.

I was poking around the SDO First Light web page and I found this site. Has the movies in numerous formats and sizes.

Scientific Visualization Studio

I think I will spending some time there.

Edited my previous links to the actual HTML page rather than a directory listing:

SDO might just be the mission that finally converts Mrs. nprev into an UMSF fan...just caught her independently surfing to this site on her MacBook! laugh.gif

Just stunning.

I wonder why they didnt go with the same colour scheme for the 304 (orange) ,171 (Blue) and 193 (Green) lines like those from SOHO and STEREO.

Here's the SOHO EIT 171 image taken at about the same time as the SDO 171 IMAGE, the difference is staggering.

SOHO 171

SDO 171

The SDO image is a 10MB GIF, couldn't find it in JPG format.



And again with the EIT 304 image

SOHO EIT 304

SDO 304

Again the SDO image is a 10MB GIF

On the press conference and EVE instrument:

The solar image on the EVE spectrum image is not a mistake. We designed the instrument almost from the beginning to use an otherwise unused portion of one of the spectrometer CCDs as a pinhole camera - we call it SAM, the Solar Aspect Monitor. SAM has its own hardware including a precision 26 micron pinhole, filter wheel, and its own optical path with a door (one of four on the instrument) that we had to open to get first light.

The unexpected thing about it is that we are able to see the sun as well as we do. The SAM image was apparent in the very first CCD image we got down. We weren't expecting to be able to see the limb or active regions this well until years from now, well up into solar max.

Those comparison images really drive home the difference in resolving power.
The comparison between MRO taking on MGS's role is more and more apt!

What exactly was said about that? It surprised me when I heard it but I was busy writing down other things so I didn't get what the P.I. said. It seemed weird to me that an image of the Sun showing up so beautifully on a detector would be a "mistake."
