The Sun 10-8-08 – Large prominence in the west

A very tall prom was visible in the west today with the other main prom groups in the south and east. No surface activity visible. Horrible conditions for imaging with high winds, frequent squally rain showers and fast moving cloud obscuring the sun for most of the day. Finally got a break in the cloud around 14.50 through to 16.12 BST and grabbed a few AVI’s with the DMK 21AU04 mostly working at 1/13 sec for proms and surface shots at 1/60. Cloud ruined a lot of video footage and led to lots of processing to cut the clouds out in Virtualdub then re-save as AVI and re-align in Registax. Processing time was probably 2.5 to 3 hours total!
