My first Solar Image of the New Year..and New sunspot/ AR2936 has rapidly grown into one of the largest active regions of young Solar Cycle 25, quadrupling in size in only 48 hours. The entire group stretches 100,000km across the surface of the Sun.
Finally the sky cleared after the clouds and snow events. the last few weeks, we had a few nice hours of clear skies during the day today.
So I decided to put my Hydrogen Alpha scope back to work again.
I took several images full disk, and close-ups, plus a few nice prominence/limb pics, I’ll post those later.
Here is a close up shot of the active region, captured with my Lunt 60mm /50 HA Scope and QHY290M Cmos camera, 0.9ms exp. , Fire-Capture SER file, Registax6, Stacked 744 frames. captured on 01-30-2022 17:23 UT from my backyard observatory in Dayton, Ohio.
