A Big New Spot On The Limb - 5th May

Hints of prominences and the spicule layer are visible in this close up of the new active region and spot that have just recently passed over the solar limb.  The image was taken with the 80mm scope at 1600mm focal length (f20) with the homebrew CaK filter, Beloptik Triband ERF and DMK31 camera.
