AR11704 - 25th March

New active region AR11704 shows a wealth of interesting features in Ha wavelengths.  Taken with the 70mm PST mod at f12 the seeing was just good enough to allow me to use these longer focal lengths.  With active regions, sunspots, filaments, filaproms, surge prominences and just plain ol' prominences it was all on view today in the suns north east quadrant.  Hopefully the weather will improve and become more spring like allowing me to get some more solar observations in!
