I was pretty lucky today, as I was able to shoot around the clouds in the morning and then do some visual in the afternoon as the clouds parted.  Here is my full disk using my Lunt 60 PT double stacked with a 90mm Coronado DS etalon and my ASI178MM.  I was able to get some more data in Ca K and white light but I've had limited time processing. Hope you had clear skies!

Wow James. Those images are great. I was out this morning doing visual and seen the proms that were seperated, but the imaging really brought out the details. Great job.

Best.....Hank

Nice!  You really got the filament and plage to pop on this one!  Love that the whole thing is on-band for the full-disk shot; filaments, ARs, plage, and proms.

Thanks for the positive feedback!  I find that when there is a well-defined filament it helps with being able to tune both etalons.
