Hi,

 

I caught this on the sun Wednesday. Anybody know what the bright part is? In other images I over exposed it and it had peaks of bright white. My atmosphere has a real attitude problem so it is never steady, even for deep space stuff at night.

 

The camera is an ASI 183mm Pro

Telescope is an Skywatcher Evostar 72mm

Filter is the Quark Chromosphere.

Solar flare and it looks like a sunspot is close by.

Thanks. I can't wait for the sun to get more active. I have a higher f/7 telescope I hope to try on the sun too. Maybe seeing will be better too.

That looks to me like region 2772, which contains 3 sunspots.  Refer to this link at spaceweatherlive.com for more details.

It looks a bit like Elvis, try selling it on Ebay. Other than that, nice pic!
