No chance for animations so grabbed as many shots that I could through the breaks in the clouds.  Shot first in SS mode and then in DS just to see the difference.  Fun to play around!

After checking this out in DS mode I noticed that this prom was also a filaprom (DS)

Warren,

Excellent! Thanks for capturing them. I enjoyed seeing them change through the afternoon. I've been looking for more filaproms since AR12765 went over the limb. I didn't see that one of them was a filaprom, maybe conditions or the SS did not provide enough contrast?

 

Again, great job! Thanks!

 

Joe

Good work. I like the filaprom pic the best, and I must say they are all eye catching for sure

Thanks Joe!  Yes, I did not realize that was a filaprom when I had the scope in SS mode.  As soon as I put the DS on it was plainly visible!

Thanks BD, that's my favorite as well and happy I was able to pull it out this time!

Thanks Harald!  Although not near the resolution I finally achieved some of the depth I see in your images.

Very nice collection Warren!

It's amazing what can pop out when you narrow that band-pass down by double stacking.

When I set up, I start in SS and tune in what I can, and then adding the DS is like opening the door to the candy store.

Love those fila-proms (when you can find them.)

Thanks
