I told myself I wasn't going to try and capture an animation with so many cirrus clouds this morning but then I saw this complex and well, I couldn't help myself!  I tried to adjust the histograms on each frame to mitigate the variation in brightness in each frame but it still flickers quite a bit.  I actually did two sequences but the first really had large changes in brightness although there was actually more motion in it, but I decided this was the better of the two.  Nice bubble rising up in the main portion of the prom with quite a bit going on around that area too.

Very nice animation! How long time do you have between each frame?

Thanks!  I use a 60 second delay between each frame, this animation represents 30 minutes in real time.

 

Well done Warren. Beautiful cascading effect.

Thanks, a little frustrating with seeing being excellent but these high clouds getting in the way!  The Hinode guider showed the sun intensity varying between -3.2 - -2.5 ev's.

Very nice animation, I was out for an hour or so and this system was faint but observable.

your capture really brings out the detail and the movement is interesting to watch
