Probably the last day of a stretch of good weather for a while today, if the forecast is correct, so I shot the decaying active regions while I can. A one-shot disk:

A two-pane mosaic (the seam still showing - I have to improve my flats...):

Very nice disks, Frank.
Your two-pane mosaic appears to have more contrast. Is this from different processing?
Cheers.
