Our astronomy club the Southern Astronomical Society, had a Lunt 80mm solar telescope and a few Coronado 40mm PST scopes on display for everyone to safely view the surface of the Sun in H-alpha, where a lovely solar prominence was firing away on the NW limb. The other small sunspot on the surface is AR2664.

The solar image above is a composite, one set of images for the disc and one set of images for the faint prominence, because you need a longer exposure to capture the faint gases of prominences.
Images taken with a Canon 700D and a 3x Barlow lens, the disc image was ISO200 and 1/160th second, the longer exposures images was for 1/20th second and ISO 400. Both images were combined in PS CS4.
