Finally got to my full disk shot. A number of proms that myself and others got some close ups of, with little on the surface!

Way to go Warren! I am really missing solar imaging. Lately, I am either working or the weather is not cooperating (such as today). Do you have the double stack unit?

Excellent image Warren.

How are you able to capture so much detail in both the disk and the proms? Are you taking separate images and combining them? With me LS80 DSII, I could barely pick up those proms yesterday when exposing for the disk.

Thanks Pat/Tony!

Pat, mine is the single stack tilt etalon.

Tony, yes, I do separate images of the disk and the proms and then combine them. If the proms are bright enough sometimes I'll try to grab both at the same time and just do masks to stretch, but I find with some of the fainter proms doing the two separate images is better for detail. I typically invert the disk then as it is easier to blend the two images together with the proms as a Positive image and the disk as a Negative image.
