WARNING: NEVER OBSERVE THE SUN WITH THE NAKED EYE OR THROUGH A TELESCOPE, CAMERA OR OTHER OPTICAL DEVICE UNLESS YOU HAVE A PROPER SOLAR FILTER AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Saw this huge but very faint solar prominence erupting off into spcae this morning. I thought I would try and zoom in on it a little bit so instead of using my zoom eyepeice at my normal 16mm focal length I used 8mm (the shorter the focal length the more magnification). Hope you like it.
