Not sure why these didn't show up well on the images of the full disk.  I used the same scope, the Lunt 60 mm DS with a Coronado 90 mm, but used an ASI290 instead of the 178 for the full disk.  Maybe the tuning is a little off on the FD's.  Once again I processed them a little differently, so choose the one you like better.  Thanks again.

Very best,

Thanks, Marty, I have to agree!  I basically follow your tutorials for processing.  The first image is using just one pass of the Shadows & Highlights process in Photoshop.  I find if I do two I get a silvery band near the limb and a darker final image as seen in the second image.  I think it has to do more with the lower quality of the data or maybe I'm overdoing something. Maybe one day I'll wake up and get some fine sub-arcsecond seeing.praying.gifrolleyes.gif
