Hello everyone.  I thought I'd try out the new forum and post some images and a video link.  Below is a link of a calcium prom I made a while back.  Very fluid motion in Cak:

Below are some misc solar images I've taken over the past couple months:

Thanks Scott and Cameran.  I am glad to be a part of this new forum.   Here's another movie that shows two cyclones on the Sun.  It take a while to load but its pretty cool once it starts moving around.

Very nice images.
I havnt done to much with the PST yet because im to bust staying out alll night imaging DSO.
I really need to work with the PST more.
I imagin when I do ill have a lot of questions to get the setup right with the DSI II and PST.
Again very nice images.

Those are truly amazing!  I am fascinated by the quality of images the amature astronomer makes these days.  These are the best images of the sun I have seen.  Outstanding work Larry!

Thanks Guys.  Lots of practice, patience, and good weather really make the difference when shooting the sun.  Some of the days when I thought the seeing would be bad, it was actually very good.  Many of my images were taken prior to rough weather.  It's fun when everything clicks right.  Clear Skyz, LA

I was able to view movies at the old Coronado site, but can not at this new Meade site.  Would this be because I need new software loaded to view movies?
