Solar Prominence

Sunspot AR 1072

This is what he wrote in the e-mail:

Last weekend I made some pictures of the sun with a new setup out of a 102/1000 Frauenhofer refractor (shortend), the h-alpha filter of a PST and the BF30 Coronado Filter. I used the DMK 31AU03.AS b/w USB with IC Capture.AS, stacking 300/1500 with Registax and finishing/coloring with PS5 and Nik-Software Viveza. The two pictures are first light shots with this setup. I still have to optimize the h-alpha filter position. The sunspots AR 1072, taken around 15:00 local time, May 23, 2010. Because of difficulties adjusting the h alpha filter I had to cut the pictures.
