Prominence Animation 21st April

As todays imaging session was drawing to a close there was high cloud and haze drawing in across the sky, I decided to try and have a go at an animation of one of todays large prominences.  Typically it was fairly quiet and didn't do much in this 20 minute animation but there is some movement of the plasma held aloft by magnetic fields.  Photoshop struggled to align the frames for the animation, but did so in the end, and so I decided to upload it here.  This was taken with the 100mm PST mod at 2000mm focal length with the DMK31 camera.
