It's been a couple of months since I've had a chance to do any solar photography. Spring weather brings more clear skies, and it's easier to get the photography equipment and mount set-up. Not really huge prominences today, but it was great to be observing and working with an image again.

Steve, great shots for a PST. I've just had a look at your website and I have a 60mm refractor and 127mm Mak as well. We're also similar age, as you admit to being at least 52 and I'm 54.

I had a PST for my 50th birthday and haven't looked back.

Thanks Phil!

Just got in from observing with the PST. There is some interesting dark and light texture around the area of last week's active region that is just now rotating into view.

(I'll admit to being at least 56!)
