That pretty much looks like it. I was surprised that the PST (with Denkenmier upgrade) could show so much detail.
Thanks for the pic.

Thanks Atmos. I was very dubious about making out such a feature with my little scope. After doing a bit of checking on the various solar websites, and going through all my shots to see if it was a reflection of a sunspot or the like it really seems like I was seeing a CME. Pretty exciting stuff for a newbie like myself.

This was a first for me. I've only had it for 6 months and it gets a fair bit of use as It's always a quick and easy thrill with a solar scope.
Next time I'll try to get some better data recorded so I can attempt to tease more detail out.

Thanks for the help everyone. This is a hobby that never ceases to amaze me.
