First Magnesium image of the sun from the UK

Well here is my first image with a Daystar Magnesium Quark or to be precise Mgl b2 Filter running at CWL 5172.8Å. The weather here was pretty poor with a few gaps in the cloud. As the image shows the sunspot in AR12706 has gone. I switched to a colour camera just give the image some contrast on screen. There are very few magnesium images of the sun so i am looking foward to some clearer skies to see what the Quark will show. The other images were quite poor but they were showing some interesting detail.

Gary,

Not sure if you are registered with your own members' webpage. It would be good to have it posted on the Members' Pages.

Cheers, Richard
