Ha Full Disk 21st May With The PGR BlackFly (IMX249) Camera

First shots with my new camera here - the Point Grey Research Blackfly IMX249 GigE mono camera with 5.86um pixels.  This 1920x1200 pixel camera allows me to capture the full disk in one image - no more making mosaics!  using the Coronado DS40 and barlows with a 1200x1200 region of interest applied.  The resultant full disk is very even with none of the gradients that a mosaic can produce.  I'm really pleased with the levels of detail recorded, and also the lack of noise compared to my trusty DMk31.  I just need to explore the settings a little more on it to see what the camera is capable of producing.
