Since the PTO’s solar telescope is not yet permanently mounted, I routinely check NASA’s SDO current data web page to see if there is any significant solar activity visible. A quick look yesterday (the 28th) showed two large prominences on the Sun. By the time I was able to get the telescope and camera setup and once the Sun cleared the trees in my neighbor’s backyard there was only one left. This image was taken about 1230(L) and contains about 250 frames.


I tried using a 2x barlow to increase the image size, but the atmospheric distortion was just too great.
