Location:
my backyard in Buffalo, NY
Details:
This image is captured with a specialized filter (loaned to me courtesy WNY astronomer Dennis Zywiczynski) that passes light from a narrow band in blue/violet end of the spectrum centered on the CaH wavelength (396.8 microns). Tiny sunspot group 1002 was kind enough to appear and pose for this first light image.
