Prominence Today - 16 July 2013

okay.. today was a good day for solar imaging and bad day on my software learning. I first captured a single video of this prominence and then went on recording several videos with a wonderful software, DSSR, Dave Solar System Recorder. These past days i was using my VX mount's hand controller to keep the sun in the view while recording. DSSR is pure magic to me.. it was tracking the sun and was doing it so well! I came inside to avoid the heat.

After i finished recording, i noticed that every video was less than 200 frames, instead of 1000 frames! I cannot use these videos.. these are all full of noise and very low data. There goes another attempt on animating a prominence. I should spent more time in learning everything in this software.

Anyway folks.. enjoy this image.
