What a whopping mastodont of a filament: I had problems to get it in my Field-of-View. I measured the size of the filament at 39x Earth - 550.000km. To measure the size I used the "Measuring the size of a prominence" scenario of my Sun Ha Tutorial. Imaging equipment: just a standard PST with 2.5x Powermate and a webcam.
