I don't normally bother taking pictures of solar prominences; these are great 'clouds' of plasma swirling around the suns disk held in place by magnetic field lines. However on monday I decided to give it a go with the 127mm PST mod at 1900mm fl and these are the results. I pretty pleased, so maybe should try photographing this solar weather more often...
