Just a couple of disks today in Ha and Ca II K. Seeing was mediocre although the sky had great clarity.

Pity there isn't a lot to see other than a few filaments.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice images today Stuart. That filaprom in the south shows itself nicely in your Ha image. Wispy detail above a dark filament.
