Prominences and Corona
3-Picture False-Colour Composite

(minimum resolution: 800 x 600 - best resolution: 1024 x 768)

In order to overcome extreme contrasts the astrophotographer sometimes uses isophotes or false colour composites to show all details at one piture. I tried to do something similar here. Note the detailed prominences at the upper left and the match betwen the activity of the inner (greenish) and outer (white) coronal rays.

Please keep in mind that astrophotography is a hobby that demands a lot of money and even more time and effort. So I have to state that the copyrights for all of these pictures are reserved. In case you'd like to use our pictures for more that just watching them, please send me an e-mail-message and ask for permission.
Thank you.
