S5455 Ha Closeup 2nd October

This as yet un-designated region on the sun was quite possibly the most active part of the sun today.  With the HaT there was a hint of a spot emerging, and the bright plasma and twisted filaments indicate a more active magnetic field associated with it.  Taken with the Skywatcher ED80, double stacked Daystar Quark, a Baader solar telecompressor to give a reduction factor of 0.75x, and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
