Solar surface and prominences
Solar surface and prominences are ever changing and fun to capture. This image has an interesting extended prominence as well as some smaller ones and nice surface detail.

Clear sky with no wind.
ZWO ASI120S Monochrome camera and Lunt 60mm scope with 50mm double stack filter on Celestron Advanced VX mount.
Two video sequences were taken with exposure set for prominences and surface detail respectively. A flat was also taken and used for calibration.
The best 400 of 2000 frames in Autostakkert for each and combined the results in photoshop. The surface detail was added with a difference blend that keeps both surface and prominences at their best.
