Thank you Alan. It was a wonderful eyepiece view. I am on the lower part of the solar learning curve. Your work has been inspiring for years. Hoping to develop my animating skills for prominences like this. Glad you had a chance to view the prominence. Clear skies and take care.

Very nice results… must have been great to enjoy this prominence from a good location. I was watching this fabulous eruption from the various Ha worldwide fields and was thrilled to get a morning cloud break allowing me see it with my own eyes.
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.
