AR11236 Departing @ 706nm 'TiO' Wavelengths - 26th June

AR11236 made itself famous over the last week or so as a single behemoth spot that was characterised with a 'light bridge' that split it in two. This can just be made out in this image. This is a large active region that has a single small trailing spot. The active region is characterised by a lot of bright white faculae that can be seen standing out on the granulation of the solar disk. Todays WL shots were taken with the 706nm 'TiO' filter that has a magical effect of taming seeing.
