Description

Clear and stable conditions today. After a couple hydrogen-alpha images with the 60mm Lunt, I swapped in the C8 with a white light filter.

This image focuses on a newly visible active region in the northern hemisphere. The exposure and gain had to be set at their minimum values for a proper exposure.
