Flame Proms and Coronal Rain 31st July

As I came to the close of yesterdays imaging session I couldn't resist a go at imaging the flame prom that has been around for the past couple of days.  I managed 8 individual images before the hard disk was full, and after processing to my surprise was the considerable amount of movement of plasma in the individual frames.  At nearly 200,000km high this prominence showed quite active coronal rain falling back towards the solar surface.  Taken with the 118mm scope at f27, with a daystar Quark and a FLIR IMX174 Grasshopper 3 camera.
