My Best White Light Shot Yet!

AR1175 70mm f11 lrg, originally uploaded by Mark Townley.

Taken of active region 1175, this was imaged with the 70mm refractor at f11 using the Lunt solar wedge, Baader continuum filter and DMK31 camera.

Really pleased with the way this has turned out, the disk is oozing with detail in terms of the granulation, plenty of faculae visible also. The spot region is really sharp in this image. If I can get all my whitelight images looking like this then things are looking up!
