Sun in Hydrogen Alpha With Coronado 40 Uploaded 10/3/11
 This is my first try at a total hydrogen alpha disk composite with the entire disk shown. This composite consists of 18 sub frames, each 1024 x 768 in size with our Image Source DMK camera. Details include the huge sunspot group AR1302 to the right of center which flared repeatedly in late September and produced many Auroras in the north. It is still flaring mildly in this image.
