Angry Western Swathe with the Quark Chromosphere 28th September

The suns western limb was looking very angry, with 2 large active regions getting close to the edge.  It was not long after a M class flare that this picture was taken and the active regions show this.  I think I have (finally) found an optimum for the tuning of the Quark as this setting shows the most detail on the disk.  The image above is a 2 pane mosaic and was taken with the 70mm f6 refractor with the DMK31 camera and 0.5x focal reducer.
