Solar Imaging Session - February 21, 2019

It has been months already since I did my last solar imaging session due to low solar activity as well as recent problem with my Vixen GP-DX equatorial mount (flexing cable) as well as my Nexstar alta-zimuth mount (worn out RA motor plastic gear). Since I was able to fix a bit my Vixen GP-DX mount cable, I opted this afternoon to test out the mount if it is running ok and since the Sun has a large dark filament visible now near the central meridian, I use this opportunity to image the filament using my old Borg 76ED refractor mounted on the Vixen GP-DX mount using a ZWO ASI120mm webcam and Daystar Quark Chromosphere Ha filter to capture it.
