Filaments and a Hedgerow Prominence 7th August

There was a lovely set of filaments and a hedgerow prominence on the limb on sunday, a really exciting bit of sun!  The seeing was all over the place but I got some pretty decent views with the Daystar Quark on the Skywatcher ED80 refractor, Baader solar telecompressor and the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 camera.  In the days ahead the prominence on the limb should rotate around to be another filament on the disk.  Need to get my tilt reduced on the camera as the bottom right of the image is drifting out of focus a bit.
