Million Kilometer Filament - 8th February

The largest filament for some time is currently visible on the face of the sun, spanning over  a million kilometers in length.  This image was taken with the double stacked quark and my new skywatcher ed80 refractor - this seems to be a really good combination, the camera was the DMK31 with a 0.5x reducer on the nosepiece.
