Solar proms in Ha visible

Anyone who has a Ha scope and wants to try it out.....
Check GONG
http://halpha.nso.edu/

There a couple of pretty large ( well, for this time in the cycle!) proms which make interesting viewing.
Images to follow.....

Ivan,
Thanks!

I was actually testing the SM60/ED80 with a PST mod to achieve a DS configuration.
Using the ASI 174, x2.5PM and tilter.
The results are looking promising - getting the spiculation edge layer reasonably clean of the Photosphere.
Onwards and Upwards.
