A big quiescent prominence suddenly start to detach from the Sun disc, in few minutes it reach huge dimensions but with lower luminosity, the structure is dissolving with the magnetic lines. I could capture few moments of the event tuning gamma and exposure at each frame to compensate its fast evolution. The transparency was bad, a milky sky, but the seeing was better and let me to take few good frames even if I had to shorten the movies more then usual. I saw the start of this liftoff on sdo website and decide to set as fast as possible the telescope, if i a checked it only half an hour first i could had follow the event since the start, but it is also true that 20 minutes after I would have seen nothing so I don't complain a lot eheh Here you can watch at a high resolution mosaic of the prominence. and few other prominence of that day. The animation represent a close up portion of the Sun of June taken with a 100 ED refractor using a Daystar h-alpha filter at a focal of 2000mm.

Also this weekend has been cloudy/stormy so I cannot use my telescope (again); I decided to make a short clip of the best solar events of the week as seen by the solar international space mission, in the rush I forget a couple but I hope you like it. I only managed to capture the first two events with my elescope.
Taking advantage of the short break I managed to finish the processing and post processing of the data collected and to assemble this short clip. I followeed for an hour the first moments of detaching of an arc prominence; evident the plasma falling back on the sun while the upper portions began to leave in the spce. I also added a timer accelerated to highlight the time elapsed, as suggested to me by someone. Unfortunately a bit 'of detail is lost in the compression site but I hope you will like it . Here also few images of that day.
