A good day to image, although seeing could have been a bit better, but did not have to deal with the high clouds this time. Some nice proms for animations and a tiny AR! All shot with Lunt LS60T DS, Skyris 236M, iOptron CEM25P

If you watch closely at the animations there is a small explosive prom to the left of the prom at the 9:00 position and a very faint short lived one to the right of the prom at the 11:00 position.

I love the thing spurting up vertically to the left of the 9:00 prom. Very cool stuff.

Thanks Dave!  Those little explosive proms are what keep me chasing animations as more often than not I catch something unexpected!

Nice work Warren, really like the animation.  Don't you just love those unexpected flares? laugh.gif

Very Cool Warren! bow.gif Every time I try to capture data for animations the clouds just don't cooperate.undecided.gif

Thanks James! Yep, clouds are a problem for sure and even simple changes in seeing and transparency can play havoc with animations!

These are really awesome. How long a time span do those animations cover, seconds, minutes, hours? I recently picked up my first telescope and I immediately bought an inexpensive solar filter so I could use it during the day time. Unfortunately, there haven't been many (any) sun spots to view over the past month. Like all of you, we probably all want the solar cycle to start picking up again.

 

Your pictures and video remind me of one of the first missions I worked on after college, TRACE (Transition Region and Coronal Explorer).It was pretty cool to show family and friends pictures and video only hours after they were taken from space. Sadly, the mission is over but they have a great gallery of shots <here> including Mars and Venus transits and eclipses.

Thanks John!  Each animation represents 45 minutes in real time so a lot of movement in a short period of time.  That looks like a cool project you worked on, I imagine that helped drive your interest in the sun!

Yes, I've worked on many NASA missions but the ones with direct imaging are always the best. SDO does a pretty good job for us with the sun right now!  It probably goes without saying but I hope you guys are checking our site to help maximize your viewing. https://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/

 

I actually work on a Mars orbiter currently. We have a telescope but it's UV so the images are more science oriented.

 

It's amazing that I didn't buy a telescope until now!
