hi all
made some animations, one of AR 1638 with a lunt 100 and a televue 2.5 powermate. it shows some intersting plasma motion near the sunspot penumbra edge. please click on the image to launch the giff

and this one, made on 27 dec, shows AR 1635 and a very interesting active region filament

http://wp.me/aT6IN-g7

and these filaments were showing some interesting motion, but i pushed the processing trying to bring out some structure detail

all movies made at 70 second intervsls with the lunt 100. thanks for looking!

Great animations Michael! I haven't had the chance to try out my new Powermate since it has been cloudy since I got it!

thanks for all the wonderful comments. i suggest to all that you try to make an animation, its easy and a great way to observe the sun, as you will sit for hours watching features move about. and results can be stunning
