Very fine! I'm on vacation and 'only' able to enjoy the sun like everybody else. But 'happened' to see the prom on GONG, noticing it was outside the borders, must be my biggest too.

I just realized that I clobbered the detail when shrinking my image for CN. Here is a much nicer view. It is amazing what you can achieve with relatively minimal equipment.
