This is a 3-frame animation that was taken starting around 12-May 2225UTC

I noticed that the plage surrounding the southern sunspot group faded in intensity between the single stack and double stack captures, which were about 15 minutes apart.

Here is the same sequence, with the lower end boosted a bit to show the proms.

Really well done and great way of presenting the different results in one handy animation. More or less reminds me of the 100 odd thousand galaxies I blinked in Maxim DL over the years.

Nice animation J.!  I'm sure you've noticed the grid pattern in the photosphere image.

Visually the difference seems larger for me. But it's good to see this from a photographic perspective.

 

I enjoyed a clear sky all day today and it was fun to see the sun change over time.
