Ha Full Disk - 2nd January 2017 - Happy New Year!!!

As I use this PST more and more i'm slowly starting to get a handle on how it works, and how the orientation of the double stacked Lunt 50mm etalon that i'm using on it manifests itself in the final image.  Today was one of those days that was quiet in CaK wavelengths, but in Ha there was a whole host of interesting smaller scale features that could be seen.  The proms and filaments were the star of the show, but there was a small and interesting emerging flux region passing towards the western limb.  The bright plage towards the eastern limb doesn't seem to be doing much at all.  Taken with the Double stacked PST and PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
