AR12158 - Daystar Quark First Light 9th September

First light taken in far from ideal conditions - the sun was very low and in quite a bit of haze / high  cloud.  Not convinced this image was actually properly on band, I think I can get much better than this, but just wanted to get a view through my new Daystar Quark Chromosphere.  This image was taken with the 70mm scope running at ~1800mm focal length.  There are a few hints of newtons rings here but on the whole i'm very pleased with this first light.  Just need some sun for a decent amount of time now!
