About this image

Attached the pressure tune module from my Lunt 50THa to a 150mm f/8 refractor (reduced to 100mm) and using my QHY5III 178M with 1.6x Magnimax lens element in nosepiece I run off a few SER files of new sunspot group AR 2827. Also noticed AR 2824 wasn't going quietly as it disappeared over the western limb. All Stacked in Autostakkert 3 and processed in Astrosurface and PS CS2. Seeing was unsteady and thin cloud.
