Excellent details!  The filaments show up nicely too!  I'll have to admit I'm not totally sold on the color scheme but then again I'm a B&W kind of guy anyway so don't take that comment to heart!  (It might also have to do with not being able to come up with a colored image myself that I like too!)

Nice detail in the prom and on the surface.

Is the color a result of the Saharan Dust or your own design? Either way it’s interesting to look at

Oh, I like that, didn't think of the Saharan Dust!

Thank you.

No color from dust. I like black & white better, probably use less color in the future.

Thank you. I'm not totally sold on the color either.

I used to try different color combinations and finally settled that I like B&W so I stuck to it.  The detail is awesome though, the filaments really look like they are floating over the surface.

Thank you. I like the color but I also like B&W. It seems to have brought out a little more detail.

That's a sharp, detailed image. I spent some time viewing this morning. The filament/prom structure forms an almost complete semi-circle. It's very cool.

In comparison I do like the B&W a bit better, detail,detail,detail wins

Yes I thought the same thing. It’s nice to be seeing beautiful activity!

That is some great depth in the B&W image!  Really shows off the curvature of the disk.

Excellent nicely done!   I too like B&W best, I have always thought that B&W showed more detail than color.

Super photos, Hank.  Lots of overcast weather here, glad to see you're not being impacted too much by the sandstorm haze!    I do like the contrast of the more sepiated tone of the proms against the dark red background, but the surface detail shows much more with the B&W
