The Sun from Port Orchard, Washington

Submitted by thenakedastronomer

Here are two recent photos of the Sun from Port Orchard, Washington. The first was taken on Friday, May 14 and the second on Saturday, May 15. Equipment used was a Coronado SolarMax II 90mm BF30 scope with an ASI174 camera. Processing was done in Autostakkert and Paint Shop Pro. Enjoy! (1st photo: Gain 100, 1200 frames, best 50 stacked; 2nd photo: Gain 25, 1200 frames, best 50 stacked). The images are not identical because of different exposure and processing settings. Which do you like the best?
