Ha Full Disk 7th August

The sun came out for long enough for me to have a play around with the Daystar Quark on the back of my Skywatcher ED80 scope, this is a combination that really works and delivers excellent results.  I used the Baader solar telecompressor to reduce the overall focal length by a factor of 0.7x.  Some high cloud was drifting around when I was taking the latter panes for this mosaicas can be seen by the glow around the limb, but, overall I am pleased with the result.  Camera used was the PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249 CMOS.
