Heya,

 

I had but a single sucker hole between clouds this morning, there was to be no longer session today. So I gathered what I could of limb spicules with an interesting arching prominence group to show the fuzzy limb of our dynamic star in HA!

The level of detail along the limb is incredible, You can almost feel the movement!

I think the inverted image releases more detail.

Great timing.

Thanks Marty bow.gif
