H-alpha Sun – September 23, 2016

Some good seeing today for these images.

AR 2596 (up in the images) looks very interesting with a whirlpool of plasma around it. AR 2593 has a plasma mountain next to it. Both promise a good show as they get closer to the solar limb.

Equipment: 150mm F/8 SkyWatcher achromat, UV/IR cut filter, Quark chromosphere, ASI 174MM. Best 700 out of 4000 frames. Seeing: 6/10.

And a slightly better shot of the same area, but a few moments later:

And a small active area with a nice filament:

Three different processing of the same filament from the above image:

And one last shot, showing the limb with some spicules and a prominence:
