An eastern prominence on the very quiet sun at 08.52 UT this morning. Captured with the PST and DMK31 camera.

Nice to see you blacking out the Sun, improves the image

Nice one - I observed & imaged the Sun myself 7 hours after you. It seems to me, solar prominences might change quite quickly. When I viewed I only saw a modest leaning pillar & nearby smaller prom.
Best wishes from Cliff - PS I like your previous Deep Sky images as well.

Cliff, I thought I ought to have a go imaging the sun again before I forgot how to use the equipment! As you can see during this time of solar minimum I've been honing my deep sky skills. It's only recently I've had the mount and camera to do it properly. :lol:
