Solar Imaging Session - September 9, 2013 (2 Huge Bar Prominences!)

The sky this morning is very hazy with some drizzle which I thought wont let me have a chance to observe and image the Sun. But at around 8:40am, The Sun peered out of the clouds for a short while for me to do a quick imaging before I get clouded out after 15 minutes :( The Sun is almost blank except for a solitary AR11838 Sunspot Group but the highlights this morning is the visibility of 2 huge bar prominences on the SW and NW limb. As I was to image the SE limb, clouds shut me down thus wasn't able to image some nice large dark filaments :(
