Great Proms Today! | 150mm HA | Oct 30th 2018

Post by MalVeauX » Tue Oct 30, 2018 3:53 pm

Heya,

Woke up to some fairly decent seeing under a clear blue sky and some chilly 66 degree F weather for once! Didn't expect much since the past two days have been fairly quiet solar discs, but there were some rather nice prominences on the limb and a little filament area that appears to have some really minor activity potentially near it forming. No visible sunspots of course and no designated active regions. Just some nice big bright prominences.

Celestron 150mm F8 Refractor + Daystar 150mm ERF + Baader UV/IR Block Filter + Quark + ASI174MM
PST + 1.5x Barlow + ASI174MM
