I agree with Jochen, as "Old Sol" is not only the "Star of the Show" literally, but so are you images, especially the first one.

Well done James and thanks vm for sharing your efforts...

Tigger,

A cold beer is what I am having right now!

Terry,
The AZ8 being a manually guided altazimuth mount with no motorized tracking is much more suited to visual work than imaging. It takes effort tending it while learning all the other intricacies of solar imaging. At least the mount has slow motion controls and is very stable.

Wow! you are definitely getting the hang of imaging the proms, usually most people struggle with these first (I still do). The top image could do with a crop though to get the prom in the centre and object of attention :)

Thanks Alexandra and Eric. I am learning but have far to go. You two set a bar so high it will take me much time to reach your level.

Thanks Terry and Frank. Now I am waiting for the next big solar feature to come along, whether prominence, sunspot group or active region.
