Hi.

In a 30 minutes cloud's hole, I captured the two main proms of today's sun. The first one was very nice and changing quickly. It's sad I didn't have time to watch longer.

Andre.

Andre, that first one looks like the whole hockey team. Incredible flare. Wonderful view.

Wow! I'm not sure which is more impressive: the arcing thread plus tidal wave in the first image, or the far right "Tesla Coil" in the second image. Terrific detail work, Andre!

... wonderful.

And may I ask how you like you Skyshed Pod? I am working with a natural history museum in Maine, and we are considering using the Pod for our observatory.

Stets

Thank you sir. As I mentionned numerous times on this forum and on one other, the Skyshed POD is the best thing I bought in my life about astronomy. I like it so much, very useful because my equipment remain inside permanently and because its really comfortable especilly during winter time.
