A couple of proms in Ha 30th May '20

Post by Carbon60 » Sat May 30, 2020 8:35 pm

Just a couple of images from this morning.

DS 150mm/Lunt 35 mod
Basler acA1920-155um
2.5x Barlow


First up is a prom associated with the newly rotated into view active region. No eruptions at the time I was viewing, unfortunately.

The second one is associated with the AR that's rotating out of view:

That's all I had time for today. Shopping and gardening got in the way.

There's always tomorrow and maybe the new AR will put on a good show.

These look fantastic at full size Stuart, I am glad you were able to capture these, very fluffy! :bow :hamster:

I've not been brave enough to go shopping yet, only for food. I really need to pluck up courage to go to a garden centre ;)

Fabulous images, Stu.
The transition from disk to proms is amazing. That’s an impressive DS setup.
Cheers.

Impressive on limb activity with prominences. Very good 3-D appearance!
