CaK Full Disk - 6th April

I got the opportunity on Saturday to test out a setup that i'd been wanting to use for a while with the FLIR GH3 ICX814 camera and the large chip it has.  Using the 100mm Tal at 1000mm focal length allows me to still get the full disk on a single frame.  The increased resolution of the 100mm means when the image is viewed full size both the spicule ring and also prominences are visible.  There is a ghost image floating around in the bottom half of the frame that needs to be dealt with, but, on the whole i'm very pleased with this image.
