Another great image of the sun Chuck. What is the shutter speed on this? It would be great to see the movement of the flares if this can be used for TL.

Thank you Jameel. According to the log that the software produces the exposure was 0.000724. When taking the video I watch it on the computer and adjust the gain(iso) and exposure to see the granulation on the surface. I try o get the fastest frame rate as possible. I will do a time lapse one of these days. They look great, the prominences look like fountains.

Hey Chuck, this is so cool. Love all that detail in the sun. And I appreciate you sharing some of the behind the scenes part of the process.

A timelapse of this? that would be so awesome!

Chuck,

Very nice - Always appreciate the link to the larger version too! I have seen cool time-lapses of the proms, they are mesmerizing, especially when one appreciates the scale of what is being displayed.

Hey, we amateur radio operators need a few more sunspots though - could you get to work on that? :) This sunspot cycle is really getting off to a lame start...
