Some filaments and nice prominences today.

As explained in a recent email dialogue,

The Lunt LS35 is tilt tuned and you can alter the emphasis twixt surface features and prominences by adjusting the (un-calibrated)¬†tuning wheel. This is true for visual use at least. I seldom do this, and¬†when imaging it isn’t that sensitive as you can compensate with processing, as I showed at RAG on friday night. I don’t change it between the surface and prominence images. I seem to get results generally very similar to those on GONG, which is my yardstick. Mind you, with published Ha images, you often see “hair” around spots, but you NEVER see this on GONG, nor do I get it.
