Solar Imaging Session - August 31, 2009 - Nice Groups of Eruptive Prominences!

Because of the almost daily bad weather, I almost forgot that the Sun's position has already shifted back to the Easternly position for me to get an access again of it in my eastern window and that means I can start shooting the Sun again before I got to work :) Yahoo! But since I wake up late this morning, I had to wait till around lunchtime for me to image the Sun. When I looked through the Sun in Ha light with a Coronado PST, I was delighted to seeing my old friend Sol enticing me again to image him. So I quickly setup my imaging system and got to image several nice big prominences around the solar limb. They can be viewed below:

Here's a beginner shot of a fly taken with a non-Macro lens while still undecided which Macro lens should I buy in the days to come? Maybe a Canon 100mm f/2.8 or MP-E65???? :) LOL

Last July 22th, I lead an expedition team together with some members of the Astronomical League of the Philippines, Inc (ALP) to observe and document the total solar eclipse that was visible in Wuhan, Hubei, China. Please check out the related pages below:
