Lets start with the full disk shot, obtained by inserting a .5x Antares focal reducer in the nose piece of the cameras barrel. The most obvious features are the active region on the right, consisting of tiny sunspots and bright plage regions. On the left is a huge filament, which is a prom seen over the face of the sun.

A better view of the proms can be had by viewing the full disk blacked out, similar to a total solar eclipse. Here on the left side, we see a fantastic shaped prom jutting out of the solar limb. On the right is smaller one.

3x Klee Barlow close up of the features. Here the active region comes into focus.

The filament is a monstrous thing, and will be a sight to see if it survives to be seen on the limb in a few days.

The big prom is like a cruise ship on the limb of the Sun!

Seeing was starting to get bad, but this close up of the other prom shows some good details.
