AR12710 in Sodium Light

First view with the Daystar sodium Quark this afternoon using the 60mm f6 scope.  Conditions couldn't be worse, a large part of the sky was covered in unstable cumulo nimbus clouds apart from a thin strip in the low western sky.  I snapped this image through passing cloud.  The view on the screen and through the eyepeice is quite different than white light despite at first being seemingly similar.  Camera was the PGR Chameleon 3.  Hoping for clear skies first thing in the morning!
