AR12396 in CaK - 6th August

It's about time we had a decent active region, and this one has developed nicely over the past couple of days.  The clouds cleared for long enough to get a view of it, but poor seeing didn't help detail levels.  Taken with the ED60 at 1900mm focal length with the homebrew CaK filter and the PGR Blackfly IMX249 camera.  Hoping conditions are slightly better today for another view as this active region has now started flaring.
