The breadboard prototype of the PSPT (Precision Solar Photometric Telescope), built by NSO at Sacramento Peak, has been operating in Rome since February 1996 to test observing procedures and future network operations. In this paper we briefly describe the kind of preliminary data we are deriving from the first observations concerning the contrast histogram and the fractal analysis of the 'network cells.'.
