Another Astronomy pic

6EQUJ5 - WOW!6EQUJ5 - WOW! BannedPosts: 482 Member
Took a few pics of the Sun and the prominences (mistakenly called solar flares) yesterday. The prominences were pretty active. The scope I used was a Coronado Solar Max II with a Canon EOS 70D attached. I'll be using this scope for the total solar eclipse in August. To put this pic in scale, the Earth would be about the size of pin head on this pic.

Edit: well that didn't work. Lemmie try posting pic again.

There we go. . . .

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Is the Moon in it's seventh house, and Jupiter aligned with Mars?

    Not bad - not bad. Before I got the proper attachment for my scope and camera I would do the same thing with surprisingly, and like your photo, decent quality.
