AR12659 in Ha - 25th May

Firecapture was playing up on my laptop on thursday morning, and I tried a newer version of the software.  To my surprise I was able to capture at 120 fps, with the laptop behaving itself!  This seemed to have a positive effect and I got some nice images from the session.  I really like how this image of the active region came out.  Taken with the 203mm Airylab HaT at 4250mm focal length, a double stacked Daystar Quark and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera using 2x2 binning to give 6.9um pixels and nice short exposure times in an attempt to freeze the seeing.
