CaK Closeup 19th April

I decided to crack out the 80mm scope at f25 today to get this mosaic shot, on reflection such a long focal length was probably a bit optimistic and should have been sensible and backed off to half that, however I shot away regardless!  A couple of the panes that make up this image are a bit ropey because of the soft seeing, but hey ho!  I particularly like the jet of plasma that is  being discharged from the sunspot right on the solar limb.
