Versatile Mintrons

The MTV-23S85HC-EX-R monochrome deep-sky Mintron is good for observing the Sun with a solar telescope such as the PST used here with a 3x Barlow. Registax was used to register and stack frames captured into AVIs for the prominences and disk separately. Andrew Sprott's Solar Layers program was used to combine the final prominence and disk images.
