Saturday Afternoon CaK Shots 17th May

I've been spoiled with the good seeing lately in my early morning solar sessions, so it came as no real surprise to me when imaging in the afternoon on what was the hottest day of the year to find the seeing conditions were terrible.  I was hoping to get some closeup images but could only manage to get usable results with the 100mm at 1000mm focal length in CaK wavelengths.  While this shows some nice detail there isn't a huge amount of difference between these and ones shot with the 40mm at similar focal lengths - the detail blurring effect of poor seeing.  Still, i'm pleased with the results and it is just nice to have some summer like weather for a change.
