A Closeup View of the Northeast - 14th April

The extra 20mm resolution of the 100mm Tal100R compared to the ED80 is quite apparent when the image is clicked and viewed at larger scale, showing much finer detail.  This is a lovely strip of active regions that have rotated into view over the past couple of days, active region ar12321 has a beta - gamma magnetic field with the  potential for M-class flares, at the moment these have just been C-class.  The image was taken with the Daystar Quark, Baader Solar Telecompressor and the Imaging Source DMK31 camera.
