My first solar prominence movie

Filed under: Animations, Sun — Dave @ 3:59 pm

This is something I have always wanted to do – capture the motion inside a solar prominence. I made it by capturing 100 batches of 75 frames using Dave’s Solar Recorder software. I then stacked and processed each batch using AviStack to give 100 sharp frames like below.

Sun on 24-12-2010 

Some frames were discarded because of trees passing in front of the sun. The good frames were then aligned to give a smooth movie which was then magnified to show the detail in the prominence. You can see the movie here
