It was not a planned imaging session, Just came back from Jogging and a friend sent a message that the sun is brimming with activity.

I set up my gear, put let the Quark to warm up and went to freshen up.

 

Equipment:

Sun filter - Daystar Quark Chromo + UV/IR cut

Scope: Explore Scientific 102AR

Camera: ZWO ASI178MM

 

Even though the seeing was not perfect, The sun was just amazing.

Had a 45 minutes of imaging and that's it. had head for work.

 

I wasn't even sure that I got a decent image, but once I processed this (the first processed of the batch) I could not wait for the others and shared it at ones smile.gif

A bit noisy but I finally got that 3d feel to it.

 

AR 2786 - Inverted Black/White

 Here, east of the Puget Sound, we haven’t had but rare glimpses of the stars, moon, or sun for 3(+?) weeks. Looking at your solar images, I feel the extra heat....

Oh, time to take off one of my pull-overs.cool.gif cool.gif cool.gif

Very nice captures, the first one does have that 3D look and the others are very detailed as well

Going through the data from yesterday, found this images that have much more data on the surface, but sacrificing the prominence. 

The area upper and right from the spot is just magnificent, swirling and surging tongues of molted stuff... firing fountain!

 

Newton rings on this one, shame. A Tilt Adapter was purchased and is ready for the next break in the clouds.

 

My favorite - Inverted Black & White

Colored inverted - might be a bit over saturated, but emphasizing the area around the spot
