The Sun in Hydrogen Alpha Light!
Yesterday around 5:30pm my Daughter Kayla got a bit bored waiting to go to a Movie with some friends. She had an hour of time to kill, so I asked her if she wanted to learn how to image the Sun, she said Sure! We went out to the backyard observatory and she opened & rotated the Dome while I prepped the PC & Scope. We used a QHY5IIL CCD Camera and Lunt 60mm/50F Hydrogen Alpha Solar telescope. I showed her how to safely center up the Sun in the HA scope and how to adjust the exposures using Fire-Capture Software on the PC...we captured lots of data in about 40 minutes...there were many Bright Prominences on the Sun yesterday, but we went after a Larger  but a much fainter Prominence, we also tried to barlow up (magnify) to capture a close-up shot too!

I included an over exposed shot with a black occulting disk to show another super faint Prom and also included is an Inverted Blue image so you can see finer surface details. I’m so Very Proud of her, she did a good job, asked a lot of great questions, and with Dad's help processing...we can now share these captured images with you all.
 
Best Regards,
John Chumack
