Spectacular prominence and linear feature
Seeing was very poor today, but I managed to capture an image of a spectacular prominence and a long, linear feature which I assume is a filament edge on. A good focus was almost impossible to achieve the disk features were in constant motion due to unsteady air. I took the prominence image without the DS configuration. I did take one with the DS. The image was brighter, but not as well-focused, so I did not use it. Other images in this post were taken using the SolarMaxII.
The images below show the linear feature with normal processing and inverted processing:
