Solar images for 8-2-12

Bart Declercq Posted some Hi-res Sunspot images:

"Yesterday, I was very lucky with the seeing, allowing me to increase magnification considerably. Using the Basler Ace a1300 camera (3.6µm pixels) at 6 meter focal length and having a full-aperture solar filter on the 30cm Newton gave me considerable resolution, as you can see in the attached images."

Harald Paleske has some more outstanding images, this time of a filament he called "Mouth of hell".

"31.07. :  The conditions was very poor, but the objects was very interesting. Like a fire tongue the gas from the open chromosphere climbs up.  It looks in such a way as if the devil sticked out his tongue short from the hell."

CN Member AstroPaolo posted some Hi-Res Mosaic's:

" In those days (July 28-30) the Sun was spectacular, full of prominences and details on the disc. Here the mosaics I could build with what I captured, the seeing was not so good but atleast the sky was not cloudy or foggy.  I also attached a single image of 26, not yet publushed."
