Nicely done Jeff!
You sold me on the Quark.  I need one of those.

Subject: [ap-ug] Summer Skies gifted with Solar Prominence

Hello APUG,

Our family vacationed in Surfside Beach, SC this past week. I had envisioned a video production celebrating the “Summer Sky”. I planned on capturing the beauty of the sky with clouds, stars, Milky Way, Sun, and Moon. I brought my Astro-Physics Stowaway and Daystar Quark Chromosphere Eyepiece along for hydrogen alpha views and images of the Sun. Boy was I in for a treat. I viewed/imaged the Sun every morning and was taken aback with the views on August 3. The prominence was fantastic and lingered well into the next day. Below are the images and links to the video production. I will soon have a video reviewing and discussing viewing/imaging with the Daystar Quark Chromosphere eyepiece. So far, it has been a blast since I picked it up in December. Clear skies and thanks for stopping by.

Sincerely,
Jeff Ball
