Hedgerow Prominence and Filament Closeup 9th April

I've only recently started to image with the Tal 100R refractor and the double stacked Daystar Quark, Baader Solar Telecompressor and Imaging Source DMK31 camera, but I must say the initial results are promising, I particularly like the textured surfaces the sun takes on with this setup that has a sense of real depth and 3 dimensionality to it.  All these images from Thursday were taken in less than ideal conditions with poor seeing and poor transparency, but recording 1000 frames and only stacking the best 25 seems to get acceptable results.  The good weather is set to continue for a few more days at least here in the UK so hopefully should get a few more images in yet.
