AT THE HEART OF THE HEART - AR2529 Taken by Maximilian Teodorescu on April 13, 2016 @ Magurele, Romania

Today was a good day for solar observations. Variable seeing but with excellent moments, which allowed me to image the heart of the heart shaped sunspot AR2529. 
The image was acquired using a 355mm F/5 homemade Newtonian with Baader Astrosolar filter, two Barlow lenses (a 2x TeleVue Powermate, and a Baader 2.25x), and the ASI 174MM camera with a Red filter.
First shot presents a colored view (via processing), with the size of Earth also shown for comparison.
