The Scars of Spots Long Gone - 5th July

This may seem a fairly insignificant bit of the sun, but with its plage and filamentary structures marking magnetic fields, this area is the relic cores of some of the active regions that we have seen in the past couple of months.  The seeing wasn't great but shooting enough data and lucky imaging meant I was able to recover something usable.  Taken with the 0.2m Airylab HaT, the double stacked daystar Quark at ~6m focal length with a PGR Chameleon 3 camera with 2x2 binning.
