There was a lovely surge prom visible today using the double stacked CaK filter. The faint CaK spicule line can also just about be seen on the limb. It seems that double stacking in CaK makes the prominences much easier to see compared to the single stack images. I was pushing things today with the low altitude sun, with this shot being taken with the 100mm at 2000mm focal length with the DMK31 camera, but this image is just about usable... It definitely has much promise for when the sun is higher in the sky.
