Equipment:

PST CaK with DMK31AU03.AS for the whole sun image and an additional Meade 140 2x barlow for the animation images.

Description:

Clear skies today, but the temp was 22 degrees with 20mph winds. I wanted to grab an image from the sun quickly. When I started capturing I realized that there was a faint but huge prominance visible in CaK. When I finished my full sun image, I captured a close up and believed that the shape had changed in the short time, so I grabbed a few more images, until my hands had trouble operating the laptop. Once processed, I saw that I captured a CME in full swing. (animated gif available (226kB) of the ejection. Can email)
