From the Harold Washington Library...
Three photos from this mornings walk. (Canon G9X)

Autumnal atmosphere by the harbor.

Another trio that I took recently.

It's so cuuuuute! The tiniest pumpkin I've ever seen, it's only the size of an acorn!
Wow... some beautiful work since I've last visited this thread. Thanks for sharing.
Here is a photo I took today of a massive prominence at the edge of the sun:
Construction at my old high school. I hardly recognise the place. Where the steel structure in the middle now stands once stood the "200 Bldg." which was where the English, foreign language and history classes and the library were.
That is a stunning solar image. Was it thru an amateur or professional telescope? It is amazing to think that the entire Earth could probably fit within that magnetic prominences' loop. I only have a small Astroscan 2001 4'' reflector, which I've had since 1978 and I sometimes take lunar photos with it. Just amazing the level of solar detail you've captured in your image. Compare it to my rather less impressive image of the sun I took, hand held thru a solar filter!
Another morning photograph.
A gloomy day in my hometown.
Some before and afters

Thank you and thanks for sharing your eclipse shot. The set-up I use is amateur equipment, but nice quality - a 90mm hydrogen alpha etalon mounted on a fast 92mm apochromatic refractor. The Astroscan was a very innovative design in its day. We see a lot of them in our public observing events. And you are quite right... the earth would easily fit through the opening under this massive plasma loop. The prominence is more than 150,000 miles long. This image from the day before has an earth disk (8000 miles diameter) added for scale.
