That's a fine half pie, not a slice! Interesting to see the difference, nice shot Alan.

After such a long time of mostly blank Solar observing, it is nice to once again have large spots visible even in properly filtered FINDERS, much less a fine 6 inch refractor fitted with a Hershel Wedge.



I will admit, however, that observing the Sun "boiling" with a 10 inch scope Mac in White Light had it's own rewards...
