Here's a 10 frame animation. 1 frame per minute.
It shows the movement of this large prominence over a very short time frame.

Good work SD, I guess you can at least count on a bit of Sun down your way :grin:

Usually. But as luck would have it we've had quite a bit of cloud cover ever since I purchased the new Lunt a few weeks ago.

Well done, SD.  Thanks for the share.

Did that skywriter here in Vegas interfere with you on Tuesday morning?  It did me.

I missed that one. I'm in Henderson so out of my frame anyway. And I was out early afternoon.

      For sale 450D camera modified for astronomy, the IR filter has been removed to allow the important red emission nebula to come through. The price is £140.
      This camera has a very low shutter count of 1588, in very good condition, comes with 1 battery and charger (connects via USB to computer or smart phone socket ect ), I don't have the original box, but will pack, very well. The price includes special delivery. This is for the camera body, no lens. Any questions please email me any questions......clear skys.

      I almost hesitate to ask this but ahem, here goes... 
      My EBay white light filter turned up today & I scurried out into the garden like an excited child on Christmas morning. 
       
      After a bit of faffing I have it clamped to the ST80 and using the equally cheap but pleasingly effective SV-Bony pinhole projector finder (can’t believe it just slotted in and is aligned as there’s no way to adjust) there is a lovely big, crisp, solar disc. 
       
      Can’t see any sunspots though - and here’s the dumb question - is there just nothing doing today or am I missing a trick? 
       
      Any beginner tips on white light observation gratefully received...
