Coronado Solarmax II double stack to ZWO ASI294MC pro camera on Ioptron skytracker pro mount through bedroom window. SER video processed in PIPP, Autostakkert, Registax 6, DPP. Key to the image is the SharpCap histo-Color settings to convert red H-Alpha to solar yellow - red set to 17 vs usual 50-60. The huge prominence on the south of the sun remains red-orange despite this setting.
