Hi cloudy days guys
Here is my contribution to show to some of you that our star still exists!
The left sketch is made in Halpha with my Lunt 35T (10h40UT), the right one is made in white light with my 102/1000 (11h05UT) both in parallel as shown in the telescope sketch here under.

I love the orange disk you are using for H-alpha representation.

Nice closeup. I'm just back from my dome and I did the same area as you. Today the temperature is -20C with a steady wind, but I was so comfortable in my dome.
