Nice disk Dan!  Working on an animation of that filaprom at 1:00 position

Yup, lots of proms today, view nice. 

 

Question: at the scope, my view was flipped horizontally (that beauty at 1pm was actually at 11am for me). Is my scope flipping the orientation, or is this image flipped?

If you use a diagonal it will be a mirror image.

Hi Dan,

 

Good images, but one of the benefits of a DS system is the reduction in the disparity of disc and prominence brightness. With a well-tuned DS and the right capture settings and processing, you shouldn't need to use a disc image combined with a prominence image overlay. All my of the H alpha solar images in My Gallery were made without such composite processing.

Thanks Bob.  I saw the filaprom in my FD image however I am at the bottom of the learning curve and was unable to bring it out.  You have given me some direction that I shall explore.  Lots to learn.  Thank you again.

Glad you captured it. The one positioned at 1:30 was a big filaprom, but the one positioned at 10:30 in the top image was also a filaprom today, at least at noontime.

Is a blocking filter considered a diagonal?

If it is right angle it is.

Looks good!  And ya, there is so much to learn, lol.  I'm just now getting comfortable using a single image for both disc and proms.  Laziness can be a good motivator to increase my skills when they result in less time/effort/processing:)
