The Sun in H-alpha

This video was done using a large number of single images grabbed during the 100 Hours of Remote Astronomy at The Virtual Telescope.

It is a amazing to see this prominence rapidly evolving (the movie covers 1.5 hours) , with the plasma raising and falling.

A Coronado SolarMax60 H-alpha telescope and a DBK 31AF03.AS CCD camera were used.
