Have some interesting data from August 28th. Had about 90 minutes of good seeing before being clouded out. There is a dark feature in the EZ with a thin bright diagonal strip that is just to the F side of the dark feature. This bright strip seems to run from the South to North,diagonally along from the F side curving down and under the dark feature toward the P limb. Both features are resolved in 685nm IR,R and RGB data although greater detail of the structure is seen in IR. I have also attached animations which show both features well. I note that I have imaged similar features previously on Aug 17th,July 27th,19th & 13th and also June 15th.
