If you have some examples you would like included here please send me a description of how you made the astrophotos and a copy of the images as GIF or JPEG files (due to internet email gateway issues, please send only one image file per message). Send to Alternatively, if you have created your own web page with your examples please let me know and I'll include a link to your site.

please find attached a photo of a protuberance on the western solar limb. It was done on 2005-11-26, 12:50 CET with CORONADO P.S.T. and 25mm Ploessl on a standard tripod, photographed with PANASONIC Lumix DMC-FZ30 (single shot, ISO 400, f3.7, 1/6s, 420mm zoom)
Here in Germany it is a P.S.T. 'feaver' so I am wondering why not more people show H alpha photos on your great website.
