Beautiful calcium images, Christian.
Is your full disk a mosaic?
Cheers, Peter.

Beautifully performed images, Christian!

I too, always looking for your images. I especially impressed how contrast your Barr CaK filter - a chromosphere spiculae lyer is easily seen at the limb.

Thanks to all for your kind words :-)
