When I saw this huge prominence I decided to make a time-lapse of its tiny movements; it was very slow and gave me the opportunity to take long exposures for each frame. With a so long capture I reached a good number of frames to stack, but after finishing the animations I'm wondering if it could be better reduce it a little to have a better composition of few faster inner movements.
As write on the image, all was captured through a 100mm refractor with a daystar filter.

My intention was then to make few close-up animations of the more interesting formations but clouds arrived just after the first capture session.

It is an HD video, just watch it big. Hope you like it. :)

Great job! I love the short, stubby, twisted portion on the left.

Wow, too cool. This is really a beautiful prom. I'm missing my sun after 5 days overcast.
