Had just a few minutes where the clouds thinned enough to quickly set up the Port-A-Mount II and the Lunt LS60T DS and grab an AVI of the full disk with the ASI74MM.  Lots of spikey surge proms which hopefully some of you can catch!  Also looks like small filaproms on the SW and NW limbs

It's amazing what you can do with a non-tracking, quick setup, Warren! Great job!

Thanks guys!  It actually cleared up again later and I set up the main mount and captured a quick animation of a surge area that I'll post is just a bit.

Thanks Roberto! I do not take retirement for granted and I do not miss conference calls one bit!
