Still fighting those quick moving, high clouds at times for the animations so a bit of flicker in the middle of this one of the prom group on the Northwestern limb this morning.  Pay particular attention to the smaller prom to the left of the main prom as a burst from the surface rips through that smaller prom quite rapidly.  Lunt LS60T DS, Skyris 236M, iOptron CEM25P

Interesting area, note the really dark filaments around the bright area.  I blew this up 1 1/2 times so a bit noisy but wanted to see it a bit better
