    Awesome image Mark! I saw this image on Spaceweather and just had to do a search for more of your images. That’s how I found this blog. Great work! I would like to get some tips from you on imaging with the PST, but couldn’t find an email address for you. I would sure appreciate it if you could contact me at kevinbozard@embarqmail.com. I have a few questions I’d love to ask. :)Keep the very nice images coming, I’d love to see more!Kevin BozardRidgeland,SCwww.kevinbozard.com
