Dancing Jet Proms and Coronal Rain - 18th April

Our star certainly is dynamic, this animation spans only 5 minutes, with a cadence of 4 frames a minute.  I was testing out a new setup with the Tal100R refractor with the double stack Daystar Quark at 3000mm focal length using the PGR Chameleon 3 with 2x2 binning to give a short expose time of only 1-2ms.  No flat here, as can be seen by the dancing dust bunnies.  I'm really impressed to get these dancing jet proms and some coronal rain falling back towards the suns surface.
