I've not seen the sun looking like that.
Hmmm, it was nearly that bad when I was trying to image it at 10:50 this morning - the Sun stays low at this time of year, but not quite as low as pictured above.

But I persisted & finally got a sort of halfway decent photo of the prominence

Excellent capture Brian!
Actually it's rubbish - this is the sort of performance the same kit turns in with good seeing

August 22nd 2008.

I'm trying to figure out how to chop a few frames out of the AVI so I can demonstrate how bad the seeing was - the raw AVI is near 500 MB so I can't post it!!!

Edit: I chopped out a few frames (consecutive) & have uploaded it http://www.bbhvig.uklinux.net/Bad Seeing.zip WARNING 750Kb zipped file, extracts to 3MB Windows AVI. This is monochrome (like the raw capture!) and does not have the overexposed disc blacked out - these are postprocessing fixes to the stacked image.
