Notice (LASCO IMAGES): Due to increased exposure in EIT and Lasco the scaling in real-time images will be different. This is true especially in C2 orange/clear. At a 100 second exposure, there will be saturation along the occulter in the north and south areas. This will produce little "horns" in the left and right direction from pixel bleeding.
