Large prom 2006-04-22 (PST)

Postby Pete Lawrence » Sun Apr 23, 2006 11:56 am

Hi all,

Some nice solar activity visible on the 22nd April 2006. No idea if the large prom is still there (23rd) as it's raining at the moment. If you have H-alpha gear and it's clear - take a look.

Actually, that was the wrong image I uploaded. My 22nd April PST shots can be seen here...

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"

Hi Pete

Certainly a significant 'prom' that, and I like the neat touch of including a scaled Earth in the picture, really puts things into perspective.

Someone else also 'posted' a very similar picture on UKAI, and this very 'Prom' was probably the most exciting feature at a very disappointing Astroblast, where a couple of PST's were set-up outside.

I'm definitely leaning towards buying a PST, despite the cost in respect of it being a single object scope.

Why was Astroblast so disappointing?

I should have added a comment from one member on UKAI.

"a waste of time and fuel"
