Here is my comparison with the Lunt 60mm SS vs DS.  I tried to process both equally.

Interesting how the filament near the limb at about 1:30 is clearly visible in double stack but just ever so faintly visible in single stack, as are the two active areas towards the bottom of the Sun's disk.
 
What was the date and time you took those photos? It would be interesting to compare them with what GONG network cameras captured at the time (GONG FTP archive).

Gregory both were taken around 1600 UT today.  Note I did not orient them with north up as I was using an alt/az mount.

the difference is subtle for an untrained eye, but quite the opposite for someone who knows what to look at.
very nice comparison.
thanks

That’s the filaprom Rigel 123 captured at 1:30

DS does make a big difference visually too, it gets better when there’s actually something on the surface

Doesn't it though!  Actually saw the filaprom first visually.
