It was nice (and rare) to see some action on the sun today, here are a couple of prom shots from this morning.

Well done, those look very good and atmospheric.

One question though - how did you manage to capture some proms????????

Ian , I used a Borg 90FL telescope, a Quark Chromosphere filter and a ZWO 178mm cmos camera.

Hi Debo, sorry, what I meant was that I was more surprised that there were any proms to actually image, given solar minimum.

Well done again!

Me too, still there's more action to come in the future 😊

Super proms Den, there is a rumour that the next solar cycle is starting.

I've got an ZWO ASI178MM but haven't tried it with the Quark yet.

Woah, guys! Way, way too pre-emptive.

Nice and easy does it ... 🤞
