After another long spell without good viewing skies I finally caught a break today.  I will see if I can come up with some descent images out of the 25 videos that I shot today.  My partner in crime, Mike, is still on his holiday in Europe so he won't be able to help out until July.  I miss his great images and I am sure you do too.
    Here is a start.  A very long filament -

Here is a nice stretch of proms that I observed today.  The first image shows the wide filament that is producing them. -

The long filament again with the shorter one below (Taken with the DMK-41, no Barlow). -

The lower sunspot I believe to be AR2356.  I haven't found a designation for the upper spot. -

AR2356 -

AR2355 in upper left of the image.

Finally!  It wasn't  the greatest day for imaging but it was way better then any day that I have had lately.  :-)  I have several videos to evaluate but here is a starter image.

AR2339 & AR2340 -

AR2335 & AR2337  Above long filament -

Closer in on AR2339 (Inverted) -

AR2339 (No Color) -

The only big prom Hay Stack) that I spotted today, opposite AR2335 -

Here's hoping for more and better imaging days.  :-)
