The strobing image presentation can be distracting but these first images are pretty swell.

Yeah, that 1/4 second per image is not great for studying the details.  But great photos as far as I can tell.

The strobing real sucks, but the images are spectacular.

Follow it a little further(made my head hurt), it gets better.

Where are the high resolution images we can download? When I tired to download an image I got the poster, not individual images.

Can anyone explain why the sun is so bright around the edges (except at the poles) in the extreme UV?

Yes much better without the strobe animation!

This is just a guess, so if this is incorrect I hope a correction comes, but.... at extreme UV you're seeing the corona which is much, much, much higher temperature than the inner chromosphere, so it will appear brighter and saturated near white (same way a really hot powerful flare is pretty much white).

 

Very best,
