Emerging Flux Region S4149 - Sunday January 18th

No doubt in a day or so time this emerging flux region, currently known un-glamorously as S4149, will be classified as a fully fledged active region as in this image it shows all the signs of coming to life.  I'm pleased with the results I got from the Quark today given the low altitude of the sun currently, things can only improve as it climbs higher as the year progresses.  Taken with the 70mm scope at f6, with the DMK31 camera and 0.5x focal reducer.
