A quick look at the SDO web site on the morning of the 30th of January showed a very large prominence visible in the Hydrogen-Alpha image. I quickly set up my portable mount and solar telescope and was able to capture this image. I had to overexpose the disk of the Sun quite a bit in order to view the prominence. There was a fairly constant light layer of clouds in the sky above and that led to the soft focus.
