I saw Jim Ferreira's animation of that SW Limb prom yesterday and knew I had captured the same area for an animation and was curious to see if the same motion was evident and it was.  I have been capturing a lot of images so pretty far behind on processing so skipped to this one.  I pushed the magnification a bit for the ASI174 because seeing started out good and then degraded as the sun rose higher in the sky.  I used my Meade 2X barlow along with a 1.5 barlow for this one.  30 minutes in real time with Lunt LS60T DS

I finally got my Lunt out during yesterday's clear skies and really enjoyed that prom. Thanks for the animation!

For the uneducated such as myself, how far off the surface would you estimate the proms to be?confused1.gif

Thanks.

Hey Mick, the arching prom is about 24,000 miles at the top of the arch to the surface of the sun.  I have a pic of the Earth that I will often display with a prom to give an idea of the size and just haven't had a chance to put that in yet.
