3 days in a row for me with sun so far - must be a record! The prom on the eastern limb just keeps getting bigger and bigger as rotates into view and now is larger than Jupiter(!) On a smaller scale, the filaprom on the southern polar region is still there too!

I tried out a new colour scheme that was being discussed on Stephen Ramsdens Solar Chat Forum (link opposite top) and have to say I prefer it over my previous pallette, so will be giving it a go!
