AR12135 CaK Closeup 7th August

New active region AR12135 emerged only some 14 hours before this picture was taken, but already has sunspots that are considerably larger than Earth.  There is not a huge amount of plage associated with this active region at the moment but this could well change in the days ahead.  This image was taken with the 40mm scope at 925mm focal length using the DMK31 camera.
