Nice collection. I noticed some lumps and bumps on the eastern limb which could herald a new AR just around the corner. Let's hope so, as the disk will be VERY quiet once AR2665 turns the corner, probably later today, by the look of it

Wohoo the Sun is out and I was ready for it for once had to wait for the last bits of cloud to shift and the seeing isn't up to much but at least we get to capture the splendid AR2665 one last time.

Nicely done Charl, there's a nice daytime Moon up there as well, can you catch it through your window ?

      Good day all, still working on fine tuning my set up.
      Attached is aggressive (first) and soft (last) processing.
      End image is with a focal reducer, no filter, which resulted in more aggressive processing to bring out details.
      I was very impressed with the Baader 685 IR pass filter.
      Comments welcome. Thanks for looking/reading and clear skies.
