Sunspot Group in AR2612

I returned to my white light solar filters project this afternoon. The seeing was too poor for a real comparison and clouds kept time to a minimum. I was however able to try my Baader white light filter with a stacked UV/IR Cut and #58A green filter. Here's a crop of sunspots in AR2612:

With the mediocre seeing conditions, I'm quite pleased with the results. I'll have to wait for better conditions over enough time to compare my other filter combinations. Questar 3.5" telescope with Baader white light, UV/IR Cut, and #58A green filters. Sony a6300 at prime focus exposed for 1/20 sec at ISO 200 at f14. Best 8 of 100 images stacked and deconvolved in Lynkeos. Exposure adjustments, 2X scaling, and monochrome Questar yellow filter tint applied in Photoshop.
