AR12414 Ha Closeup 13th September

I used the autorun feature in Firecapture, and then in conjunction with the data from the Airlyab Solar Scintillation Monitor and processed the files that corresponded with the moments of better seeing; the method worked as this shot taken with the 5" Meade AR5 and daystar quark shows.  Not bad for a shot when the sun had only just come above the rooftops and there were clouds and high level haze floating around at the time.  The Baader solar telecompressor was used to give a reduction factor of 0.75x and the camera used was the PGR Blackfly IMX249 GigE.
