The sun on February 13--Part II

Even when it is quiet, the sun is a maelstrom of activity.  This inverted image was captured with a PSTDS yesterday.  I followed the workflow described in an earlier post to produce the final image.  Poor seeing masked a lot of the detail, but the image does give a sense of the awesome power of the sun, even when it is not highly active.
