M33 reprocessed

The above image is a reprocessed version of the image below. In a little over 2 years, image processing skills have changed. Hopefully for the better. This M33 image consists of 86 Lum, 60 Blue, 40 Green, 30 Red, and 30 H-alpha. Lots of data there, but in my first processing run 2 years ago, I didn't know how to extract the data from its hiding place.

Today's solar prominence

Captured this today via my little Coronado PST. Dramatic prominence display. Looked great in the eyepiece.
