Solar Tornados - 26th June

All the data on the web indicated something was coming around the limb on sunday morning, a close up view with the 0.2m HaT revealed a twisting turning mass of plasma, which revealed itself in the days ahead to be filaments.  This animation is 25 frames taken over 10 minutes and shows the tornadic motion of the plasma as it passes over the limb.  Taken with the 203.2mm Airylab HaT at 5.6m focal length, double stacked daystar solar filter with the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 camera.
