Re: Today's SUN (20221201) | NEW AR

Great set Pedro! I have been imaging that SE limb for an animation as it appears there is quite a bit of activity around that new spot coming into view. You can see quite a few spikes in your images of that area so I hope the animation turns out OK. The cold temps are causing the image to go off ban...

Re: Quick Full Disk 11/30/2022

Thanks for all of the comments! Magnus, once I have finished an image/animation I delete the video files and save the images and animations to an external HD. I also save the raw stacks that I make the animations from. I have a 2 terabyte external HD that I have had that has about 8 years of files a...

Quick Full Disk 11/30/2022

Clear skies but 25mph gusts and now below freezing so didn't spend a lot of time, just got the disk in the FOV and grabbed some frames! Looks like a number of areas on the limb with some surge prom activity at the 4, 8 and 10:00 positions. Probably would have made for an interesting animation for an...

Re: Today's big prom 30.11.

I am glad you got some sun and got a session in. I am currently awaiting on the sky to clear off. It rained all night and now the front is passing through. We cleared off but have 25mph winds and it's below freezing now, but at least I can see the sun! Maybe try a shot through one of the windows la...

Eruption animation from GONG images 11/28/2022

No breaks in the clouds so noticed this nice eruption on the SE Limb on the GONG website so grabbed images to make this animation. Maybe someone caught a bit of this, you can see the time stamp on the animation. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52532081851_c3efa28bc9_o.gif Eruption-GONG-Images-11...

The "Rancor" prom from 11/23/2022

I got to looking at the shot from 11/23 of the large prom on the NE Limb of the sun and I kept seeing creatures in it. Not sure the Rancor is right but there is something out there that bears a strong resemblance to that prom! :D

Nice report James! I had gorgeous skies all through Thanksgiving up at our family celebration but alas no scope with me but it was fine since I had all of my kids, grandkids and total family to keep me occupied!
