I captured some data in Ca K on Sunday in less than ideal conditions.  These are the 2 best from the set.  Captured with a Lunt Ca K 1200 filter and "double stacked" with an Omega Ca K filter.  Using an ES 102 ED and a 2.5x Powermate for the close-up.

 

Can actually see a small prom or two (if you squint really hard! grin.gif)

Very best,

Thanks, Marty. I surprised myself with that too.  You can actually see a very small prom near AR2760
