Seeing was not as good as yesterday, SSM was around 1.5 - 2 most of the time.  The SW filaprom had some nice contrast to it and there was another small one on the NW limb as well next to a decent sail prom.  Animation of the small flare is 22 minutes in real time.

Nice, Warren! I was able to catch a quick peek in the morning (thanks for the heads-up), and I was going to attempt an imaging run over my lunch break, but alas the clouds decided otherwise undecided.gif

Nice catch! NOAA event list says it was a B2.7-class flare.

N17E83, i.e. near the east limb - seems to be the one.

Thanks Eric, I was going to catch some CaK and WL shots but the clouds did the same thing to me!

Warren,

 

the filaprom of the second pic is beautiful. The etalon setting is also perfect on this image on the filaprom.
