Nice capture Ken. I like the prominence coming out of the active region. I was trying to capture that image too but gave up due to thin hazy conditions.

George,
The ImPPG processing helped a lot....

Jeff, Thanks!
The weather looks like it's about the change so probably not much hope for tomorrow.

Those grey-scale images have some superb detail. It seems like any I take that when colourising the images, detail is lost. Not sure how to maintain all the detail in the grey scale images.

I'm not very good at colourising....
I think you really need to ramp up the contrast to bring the detail over into the coloured images.....

Do you think this sunspot activity will come around again towards the end of Feb? Hope to be ready for it then weather permitting

Fred,
In my opinion, no...it is too small. I think it's lost and gone forever.

That's a pity Ken, bummer. Hopefully another will form then. It has been so quiet on sun activity
