To be honest I tried the path of capturing the whole sun on the DMK41 and was never satisfied with the results and obtaining similar results. Perhaps using a 2x barlow with give you even illumination of a panel and the chance to do mosaics which give you lots more detail.
I think your processing in the first is more natural looking and I think you have gone as far as you can with this single panel imaging.
i will have to pay more attention next time Paul
as for multiple panels- big step up for me
will have to buy a barlow at Astrofest on saturday
