My SolarFlix ~ the SE Filaprom this morning

Post by Peterm »

Hi there Chatters!

Here I present my one-hour animation of the giant filaprom straddling the Suns SE limb. Unfortunately, my sub-par seeing prevails!

Its now late afternoon here and I see GONG Learmonth is showing some very promising views of a very active SE limb. Those up North maybe in for a treat.

Well captured Peter, it was poor day for imaging. Your results are really good in spite of the seeing conditions.

Love that animation! Nothing like a good, thick Solar Slug on the limb!

Your animation is a pleasure to watch, Peter, so well done. What scope/etalon ?

Perfect animation.

Hi

I had my first good look with my Santel 180 Rumak, Quark Prominence with mica cleavage faults but bright DS with a PST etalon.
The PST takes out a lot of scattered light whilst leaving the proms bright.

I could see the big filaprom 1.20pm BST and by it there were a row of thin proms with mushroom heads by it. And a dim spike going at 45Deg on one side.

Thanks for posting.

Cheers. Andrew.
