Lunt Solar Systems LS60THa w/B1200 Blocking Filter. Canon 40D shooting avi @ prime focus Losmandy G-11 mounted in a Skyshed POD.
We finally got a clear afternoon after a week of snowfall. Seeing was excellent and a series of prominences were arranged on the solar limb for our viewing pleasure. I shot 1500 frames for each half of the image, stacked in Registax 6 and processed the best 25%. Then I stitched the halves together and colorized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.1
