AR12651 Double Spots - 23rd April

A period of better seeing early in the afternoon on sunday allowed me to get another view of this active region with the 0.2m Airylab HaT telescope using the double stacked Daystar Quark, Daystar Interference eliminator and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera using 2x2 binning to get a shorter exposure time.  Even though the seeing was less than perfect there were lots of swirls and whorls in the plasma that makes up the solar chromosphere.  Looking forward to better seeing in the future that will allow me to make full use of the capabilities of this large aperture solar telescope.
