WOW ! These are fantastic, Pedro. I was out this morning but here the seeing was horrendous. You are lucky to have such good seeing.

Thanks Dan & Franco

The seeing was not that good. The sun is low in the sky and temperatures this morning were low as well (for us at least - 3C)

You still did far better than I did. The seeing smeared any fine detail for me. I could not even see the multiple umbra of that cat's paw spot in AR12795. Your images picked that up and numerous pores too!
