Nice morning, only wish I had seen that floating prom before I imaged the quiescent prom as I'll bet it would have had some interesting movement to it.  I didn't even notice it until I was ending the session due to the degradation of the seeing.  Ah well, at least caught an image of it.  There was a bit more action around that larger prom though, so not a total loss!  Still some nice areas to focus on.  The animation suffers from a few jet contrails that passed over but seeing overall was pretty decent.  Lunt LS60T DS, Skyris 236M, iOptron CEM25P

Great work Warren. Love the little eruption by the prom, always looks like bubbling stew.  Nice touch with the Earth scale.

Thanks Marty, feels like the sun is teasing us with just enough activity to think that maybe some major spots are just around the corner!

I always love the earth for scale.  If I weren't so lazy I'd do it more myself, but content to see others do it:)

 

Great images!

Great images!


I have to remind myself that it is a good reference so try to remember to open up that file when I’m working on the pics!
