I am the only amateur in the world capturing flux tubes in calcium light,  These are regularly seen in hydrogen alpha however.

I developed my own filter system to obtain this ability.  I call it the Skybender.

Awesome views! Have you considered submitting them along with a discussion of your techniques to an astronomy magazine for publication?
