saw on the Hydrogen Alpha network that there was a gian prominence on the
Western limb on the Sun. Conditions weren't great, with lots of cloud
about, but I spotted a small gap coming and grabbed the solar scope. There
wasn't time to set up the mount, so balanced the scope on the window sill,
and let the prominence drift across the sensor. The overall length is between 1/4 and 1/5th of the Sun's diameter.
