All,

Whats the best way to capture solar proms. 

Should I over expose the sun to bring it out ?    or should I do something different ?

I overexpose the solar disk to get the most out of the prom but it depends on what sort of dynamic range your camera is capable of. The DMK41 can't quite manage it, just too much of a compromise. In Firecapture there is a readout of the pixel under the cursor so you can scan around and make sure non of the prom is too hot.

There a nice one top-left at the moment that I have been trying to time lapse with mixed success. Its nearly 40 degrees in the obsy, even with the door open, so hard to stick it out for too long at a time.

I'll put my prom process icons up on dropbox.

Range mask for disk
Histo transform to black it out
Delete Mask
Noise Reduction

You sometimes get a few white spots left so use the clone stamp to get rid of them.

Hi Rog (& Chris) - I took a day off for this hottest of days...

Setup a gazeebo in the garden, which comfy chair & beer table!

Rog, that link is a process icon set for PixInsight...  save it somewhere as a ".xpsm" file

In PI, right-click somewhere on the RHS, -> Process Icons -> load process icons

right click and choose download linked file. It may save a file in downloads .xpsm.txt in which case just remove the .txt

imppg is your friend here http://greatattractor.github.io/imppg/ It has a tool to align a sequence of images with options to crop  to common and align on the limb or high contrast feature. You then load them up in photoshop and there is an option in Bridge to load an image sequence as layers.
