Details:
Combination prominence/filament on the southeast limb of the sun. The bright prominence from yesterday is starting to roll around the limb of the sun. The true symbiosis between these two features was immediately noticeable through the eyepiece (surprise! They are the same thing). The image does not portray the truly three-dimensional effect that is seen through the eyepiece. Maybe the sun is finally starting to wake up from it's slumber. Coronado SolarMax 60 (external double stacked), FeatherTouch focuser and a Lumenera LU075M camera. .avi files stacked in Registax with final processing and coloring in Photoshop.
