Alexandra,
The arc filament in the SE appears in your images more connected and complete than what I could see visually. I saw it as two. It's basically a single filament. I still can't quite tell if that NW filament/prominence connects as a filaprom.

Nice, but calm CaK images.

James

P.S. I see I am not the only one who thinks it still is 2020. 😆

Good disks Alexandra. The sky was clear here first thing and then it clouded completely mid morning, bad words were uttered in casa Townley. I'm hoping tomorrow is sunny now...

Alexandra, nice images even with bad seeing conditions.
Sometimes we think that nothing will come out when weather does not help, but one gets surprises most of the times.
Best regards,
Eric.

Thanks everyone, the images are all a bit washed out but then I was lucky enough to see the Sun :hamster:

We had thick freezing fog in the morning which lifted a bit over 12-2pm but the sky was still white so I was very surprised to get all the testing done which I did, I have to be grateful for that :)
