Never done Ha before, I had a PST for YEARS sold last year because I never used it then re bought in December last year because I got back into Astronomy.

Have a Celestron Nex Image 5 camera, terrible, sorry, almost gave up, the called someone I know at the "Widescreen centre" Simon, FRAS, owner, another like me friend of Patrick Moore.

Go mono so I did, ZWO ASI 178mm

YES I know it is a cheap camera compared to some. Used for the first time today, then again used for the first time today AutoStakkert, finally adjusted in Photoshop.

First attempt, now smitten.

it's a good image for showing the super-granulation. Alas, the solar cycle is almost at its minimum and there isn't a single spot in sight at the moment: www.spaceweather.com .
Does this affect the frequency of prominences?
