Wow, I haven't had a cloudless day like this morning in a long time!  Seeing was not quite as good as it was the past few afternoons when I was able to catch shots between the clouds but I'm not complaining as I was able to catch enough for two animations of that big SW prom as well which will take a bit of time to process.  In the meantime here are shots with the Lunt LS60T, ASI174MM, iOptron CEM25P

 

Full Disk (missed catching an animation of that surge prom on the Eastern Limb in this FD shot)

Great captures Warren, I saw a few surges this morning, literally seconds long!

 

Very best,

Very best,

Thanks Marty, I should have started on that side for an animation but wanted to spend some time on the larger prom!

Absolutely FAB Warren! Love the super detail you always bring out in your images. Showed my wife your images this morning and the one that she most liked was seeing the snow... telescope what telescope?

Good ones Warren!

Lots of action along the limb, but that big prom is really amazing. You got some great detail there.

Looking forward to the animations.

P.S I like what you did to the sun in your backyard photo, it took me a couple of takes to notice it. waytogo.gif

Cheers

Thanks Peter!  Funny, on the photography forum I am on there are two ladies from Australia and they are always fascinated by any pics I post with snow in them.  I blew them away last week when I posted some macro shots I took of some individual snowflakes!

Sun, Warren? What is that exactly? smile.gif  Haven't seen it for so long, I've forgotten.

 

Very nice images.

Very nice Warren.  I like the freestyle Ha pastie image of the setup!   

 

So I was hoping that big ole smiley filament down by AR2805 would rip loose while we were watching.   Sounds like Marty was witnessing some action.

Awesome Warren!  Sun is picking up in activity.   Of course it's sunny out very little cloud activity and I'm at work.  If i know it's going to be sunny i will bring my scope with and a TW I  and view during lunch.  Forgot to grab it today.  And of course by the time I'm home the clouds will have rolled in or its behind trees.  So thank you for sharing!!!
