Updates from the last couple of days..

Sorry folks - I got a bit sidetracked with the holidays - but lets recap a bit.

Matt Wastell posted a nice full disc showing all the recent activity today:

Here is a disc shot taken with the DMK51 through the LS60 with high Gamma to bring out the disc proms. Quite a bit was going on today. Hope the Sun is shining for you!

Andy Devey posted a nice animation of AR1635 on the 26th:

Had a chance to take a look at this AR between 12:10 and 13:26UT but the seeing was all over the place.
