Didn't know I would catch two small eruptive proms while capturing frames for this animation. Always nice to be surprised! Lunt LS60T SS, Skyris 236M, iOptron CEM25P This represents 45 minutes in real time.

Very nice! A few years ago, when the sun was quite active, I imaged it every clear day, in H-Alpha, CaK and white (actually green) light. A couple of times I caught really nice flares on the face that changed so quickly that I just kept snapping frames for that few minutes. Also noticed that the flares are way brighter than "nominal" exposure.  My scope is the Lunt 80/80.  Tom

Thanks Tom! Love those short lived outbursts the sun can give us from time to time. This would have been one of those outbursts that you could see visually changing over about 10 minutes of time!
