Hi all,

Roland Christen was asking where my solar posts where. I was posting them on another forum, I decided it's high time I posted here as well.

I could only enjoy the big prominence and filaments on the sun the week ending October 22nd second hand through another solar forum, as I was at work all week (got home too late with the Sun dipping low in the sky), and out and about the Saturday of that week (I did a quick visual peek but did not have time to shoot).

I finally had time to shoot the Sun October 22nd and found....nothing major. There's a possible filaprom in the making (maybe the big filament approaching the limb?), but I did spot a small sunspot, which I just found out is AR2685, the returning AR2673.

I shot several sequences, but only one came out acceptable. This was also my first pass at shooting and applying flats, and I'm pretty pleased with the results.

Shot with a Borg 90fl, Chromosphere Quark and Imaging Source DMK41.

Eric
