    Default Chromosphere Flares Activity and Prominences



    I just finished to work on the data of 2 weeks ago.
    The animation represent a close up portion of the Sun of 4 May. Images taken with a 100 ed refractor using a Daystar h-alpha filter at a focal of 2200mm, I reduced the focal do to a terrible seeing.

    I decided to follow for a couple of hours the NOAA 1734 zone, the bigger one of the week with the hope to catch a big X flares like the yeasterday one. Even if the seeing and the video compression had blured alot of details, the filaments and spicules movements are evident, also a couple of mini flares are visible during the time-lapse. Hope in bigger one next time.

    YouTube HD Video



    I also captured few movies about prominences and active regions, here the first elaboration (click for bigger resolution). Hope you like them.
