Another day of clear skies so decided to take some solar images from yesterday - atmosphere a little more steady - some interesting new proms and solar surface detail.  Images taken with Lunt 80 DS and 3X Barlow:

Thanks for the feedback - the sun looks more active lately - nice set of proms and surface detail.  I still need to spend some more time in tuning the doubt-stack.. all part of the learning

Wonderful images Jason. Gives me something to aim for in my start to Solar imaging. Just posted my first set of images on CN and there are proms everywhere on the Sun today!

I’d say your tuning looks good, no sign of the photosphere leaking through that I can see.

Nice images Jason!  I would just dial back a little on your sharpening routine to get a more natural look.

I agree with that, just a little less.

I agree - need to dial back sharpening - trying to over compensate for the DS tuning... using PixInsight for processing, still have some more learning in solar processing.

I'd say you are really close since you have a great transition at the limb (actually no transition, it goes well with the surface).
