Simas,

*Very* well done sketch. Lots of fine detail visible at 60x. Active Region 1158 has changed and grown quite a bit since I looked at it yesterday. It has plenty of potential for flaring--if you know anyone with an H alpha scope, you might want to take a look.

Simas,

Nice sketch of the details in those spots. You really had a great view.

Frank :)
