AR12654 in CaK light - 4th May

Whilst not the largest, or crackling with flare activity there is still plenty going on to see with this active region that developed recently.  It is unlikely it will survive another rotation, but expect to see a spot of decaying plage that marks its location in a couple or 3 weeks time.  Taken with the 60mm scope at ~1200mm focal length using the home brew CaK filter and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera.
