Solar – Mikrokular with or without barlow?

One of the reasons I like the Mikrokular is that it is full HD. It should therefore stand more magnification before being limited by pixels (the PD and Toucam are 640X480). So as an experiment, I took the last solar image I posted, cropped out the “no barlow” part including the prominences, desaturated it, re-sized it by 200%, “unsharp masked” it slightly, and set it alongside the X2 barlow version for comparison.

Although I think the barlow version is better, there is not much in it! (Just look at the prominences detail, not the disc)
