Very nice, same equipment that I have. Looks like the visible disk is quieting down.

With the exit of that big AR complex it has quietened down some but there is still plenty to see in Ha. White light has quietened down more with just a small number of spots to see.

Hi Robert,

Nice HA FD. AR 2790 is a pale shadow of its original size during its debut. Wonder if it would re-fire before moving to the dark side.
