Running Penumbral Waves and Twisting Plasma - AR12526 31st March

Starting to get the hang of things now, another 20 frame animation covering just under 15 minutes real time of AR12526 showing running penumbral waves and twisting, boiling plasma in and around the active region.  Taken with the Airylab HaT at 7.25 metres focal length with the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 camera.  This time the Daystar Quark is double stacked with a naked PST etalon.  Whilst i'm pleased with this it is far from perfect as is still quite a bit off band.  Still getting the hang of this new scope and etalon combination, it's taking some getting used to!
