45 minute animation taken with Lunt 100 single stack, 2.5x powermate and Basler 155. I captured 10 s every 30 seconds.

Very nice details, even the faintest part is so clear and sharp. Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to seeing more!

I've dabbled in animation a few times but its always choppy and not super stationary. Love how still and smooth yours is.

That is very nice Alan.

 

  Clouds and bad seeing thwarted my imaging today.

I had pretty decent seeing

 

I've dabbled in animation a few times but its always choppy and not super stationary. Love how still and smooth yours is. 

I take 10s videos ever 30 seconds. When I have to remove images due to poor seeing or tracking, etc you will not notice the loss. When I took videos every 60 seconds and had to toss a few images in a row it was noticeable.  I use a Hinode solar guider and it helps.

 

Swirling, dancing and surging, splendid Alan.

There was a lot going on.  I like the twister part of the big prom. I may reprocess it to bring out the fainter details

 

It's too good!  How did you fake it?bow.gif

Ha. I just pointed the telescope at the sun. it did all the work :)

 

Really nice Alan, amazing details and motion in that big prom!

I was pretty excited to see the motion in the big prom.

Alan, this is so good! Great action, but really amazing consistency for brightness throughout makes it really special.

 

Very best,

What a beautiful animation.
I also have to try to shorten the shooting times.
I usually shoot 30 second movies.
I'm starting to think that maybe I miss out on the smallest details, seeing how they move in the 30 second pause between clips in your animation.

I usually capture 1000 frames in 10 sec and stack about 30-50 (this video was 50).
