The Sun 25-7-08 – Large prom !

Hot and humid, but also loads of cloud all day. I had the EQ6 mount set up from 5pm and was beginning to give up on seeing some clear sun tonight when the clouds suddenly parted at 8pm leaving a perfect blue sky. The only problem was that the sun was now very low and in danger of disappearing behind the hedge before I could get any images. I had to move the mount inside the conservatory, which is set higher than the garden patio, and that did the trick. Just managed to run off some videos of the main prom and the area where AR1000 was seen yesterday before cloud thin cloud rolled in and the sun dipped below the hedge.

The large prom today was a nice surprise, very active and constantly changing shape. The remains of AR1000 and the filament adjacent to it which could be seen yesterday were still just visible right on the very tip of the limb.
