Solar selection - 11 July

I'm beginning to get the hang of using the C8 at full aperture. I'm quite pleased with the following images of the major active regions and a close up of the photosphere showing the granulation. The camera was the QHY IMG132E, which does seem to be giving better results than the DMK31.

Next, the calciums..

The Ha disc.

Two more prominences, one negative:

And finally the fortuitous capture of a satellite transiting the CaK sun.

Really amazing, Brian. My wife's old digital camera has packed up and my existing cameras just don't cut it.

I have an SPC880 and PST but can never get focus. Any tips?
How can I be at one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it actually is?
