"Before and after" images with the color table torqued to show the
new stray light in thin Al. Have we discovered a new pinhole in the
NE quadrant? The diffuse signal in the N coronal hole is almost
exactly a factor-of-two increase between these two frames - bad news
for studies of faint things like polar spikes and XBPs, we're afraid.
