My second sun time lapse video; a one hour time lapse of a solar prominence. I spent hours trying with several technical problems but finally got it close to how I wanted. I captured 8 seconds every 30 seconds in FireCapture, processed each AVI in AS!3, brought them into PixInsight to run reconstruction, aligned the frames in IMPPG and then combined all the frames into Final Cut Pro. In order to fill the void, I captured the surface detail with a separate capture and exposure, processed it in PixInsight and Photoshop and then masked it in Final Cut Pro. The surface detail is static. All colorization and final image stabilization was done in Final Cut Pro.
