Ha Closeup 26th July

I normally put colour images on my website, but with this image today I actually much prefer the way it has come out in monochrome.  It shows really well the plasma twisted by magnetic fields around the latest clutch of active regions, and makes the filaprom on the limb jump out showing the 3D nature of the features on our star.  This shot was taken with the DS40 at 700mm focal length with the DMK31 camera.
