Details:
This spot was pretty small but it had and 80's syle hairdoo around it. The wavy areas surrounding the spot were enormous and the filaments were also extremely long. It should look even better once those filaments reach the edge and become proms. I took this my Coronado 90mm H-alpha filter on my Takahashi telescope.
