Alan writes: "Dark skies have returned to the north of Scotland. There was a beautiful clear sky on Friday 18 September, so I took the opportunity to check out my imaging equipment. After correcting a problem with the autoguider (the declination tracking was switched off!), I only had time to take a few images of Collinder 399, the Coat Hanger. However, I combined the data obtained with a single 4-minute exposure taken last September (with a Sky-Watcher ED100). Equipment used: Sky-Watcher ED80, HEQ5 mount, Canon EOS 40D at prime focus. Exposure details: 3 x 5 minutes @ f/7.5, ISO-800. Guiding equipment: Sky-Watcher ED100, StarShoot Autoguider. " ?

Considering the low solar activity at present, its good to see some prominences as evidence of increasing magnetic activity on the sun. Indeed, its been nice to see the sun at all! Photograph was taken with a Canon 1000D SLR at prime focus on a 400mm telescope fitted with a Hydrogen-Alpha filter. Exposure was 1/350 sec at f11
