Ghostly prominence, Feb. 2

Conditions weren't great and the sun not terribly active, but there was this neat, faint prominence that was quite ghostly against the bright sun. I slapped on the camera just ahead of serious clouds that brought my observing to an end for at least a day, probably more.

PST, 1.8x Barlow, Flea3.

Cheers.

That looks great - saw it (or something similar) - just hanging around!

Thanks all. I got lucky. I was breaking down the gear from an evening imaging session that was cut short by clouds. It was over cast as I started breaking the stuff down and a hole of blue appeared. I doubt it was clear for more than 45 minutes. I noticed it had cleared out a bit just as I had removed the night scope from the mount, so I popped the PST on and got a little observing in. Sometimes things work out.
