with a Vixen 24-8mm zoom....saw lots of prominences at about 7 to 8 o'clock position; some detail on the sun's disk...Holy cats; this is what viewing the sun in H alpha is all about. Tough to stay out in 100 deg F though; besides which the office needed me back for the afternoon penance in front of the computer, but make no mistake, I will be back for more!

Congratulations on the new scope. I have one too. I use it all the time. You'll never get tired of it.
