After overcoming several days of bad weather conditions, I was surprised to see a small window of opportunity for me to observe and image the Sun through small openings in the sky near the Sun. As I focus on the Sun through the PST-Ha, I was was delighted to see a large dark filament arching almost 1/4 the diameter of the Sun as well as a huge eruptive prominence that was visible in the SSW limb area.! I wasted no time and setup my imaging equipment asap so that I can image it before a large band of clouds trying to cover up the sky! Images were taken using ATK-1HS II webcam on Coronado PST-Ha nd 2x barlow lens. Seeing - 1/5.
