Departing Filaments 10th march

Our star seems to be literally covered in filaments at the moment, tenuous clouds of cool plasma held aloft by neutral magnetic fields.  I really like the fine detail that can be seen in them.  This image was taken with the double stacked quark, ED80 refractor, Imaging Source DMK31 camera and a 0.5x focal reducer.
