H-alpha Sun – October 2, 2016

October is almost over, and despite the good conditions in the first days of the month, almost no H-alpha images were possible from my location due to clouds.

The following few shots were acquired during a brief session with some good seeing conditions (mostly 5-6/10, occasionally 7/10).

The presence of a luminous prominence on the limb made the session more remarkable.

And a nice active region captured in the best seeing conditions of the session:
