Filaments and Filaproms 15th February

These shots taken with the skywatcher ED80 and double stacked quark show just how dramatic fialments, filaproms and prominences can be when the image is inverted; gives a real sense of relief.  As the sun heads towards solar minimum active regions will become less common and these small filaments are likely to be one of the few features that can be seen on our star.  Fortunately this technique maximises their visual impact!
