Sun in Hydrogen Alpha

With Coronado PST

Uploaded 6/12/11

 The sun was filled with dramatic prominences and a gorgeous split sunspot in hydrogen alpha. The wind however, even at the calmest at 9:30am was so bad that the seeing was really poor. None the less the shots were worth taking and showing off to you! These are reduced and non clickable due to the seeing:
