New Active Region Rounding The Limb - 5th July

Despite having to shoot through haze and ramp the exposure up, it was very easy to see just how dynamic this crown of plasma was as it spitted and changed form in real time on the laptop screen.  Since seeing it yesterday morning it is apparent there is a large single spot associated with it.  I needed to take a lot of images to find a best one, as the seeing and transparency weren't great, but, this came out ok.  Taken with the 203mm  Airylab HaT at ~6m focal length with the Double stacked Daystar Quark and the PGR Chameleon 3 camera using 2x2 binning.
