Hi all,

I got a surprise yesterday.  After the forecast called for clouds all weekend, the skies cleared up around 2 p.m. giving me brief windows of viewing and imaging opportunities.  The seeing was all over the place and especially for Ca K II the seeing was pretty rough.  Here are 2 images of better quality.  Comments welcome.

Thanks, that was the best of the Ca K bunch.  I have some nice Ha data I still need to cull and process.
