I set up my Lunt LS60T/PS Hydrogen-Alpha telescope with a DMK41.AU02 camera and a 3x tele-extender. There was lots of activity across the entire surface so I decided to make a high resolution mosaic image of the surface and the prominences.
Near the beginning of my sequence, I obtained this image of AR1515 at 22h52 UTC. Some activity in the region, but nothing spectacular.
|AR1515 Sunspot - 22h52 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot - 23h16 UTC|
Since the camera was saturated at this exposure, I reduced the exposure length by a few stops to see more detail. I continued to capture frames at this exposure as the flared died down. A few of these are shown in the sequence below.
|AR1515 Sunspot - 23h17 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h21 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h23 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h27 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h33 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h35 UTC|
|AR1515 Sunspot -23h37 UTC|

UPDATE 2012.07.08 - Completed the original mosaic image of solar disk and prominences.
