CaK Flaring & Ellerman Bombs 14th April

I originally had my sights on making an animation of the small loops that were visible coming over the limb, and also hopefully small Ellerman Bombs exploding away around AR12035, however I got more than I bargained for as Ar12036 in the bottom right corner of the frame exploded with a C5 class flare.  This animation is made up of 37 individual frames, each made from a 500 frame animation and spans a real time interval of some 12 minutes.  It was taken with the 80mm scope at f20 using a 1.6x barlow and the DMK31 camera.  This animation crackled away with minor C class flares throughout the day as can be seen in some of the hydrogen alpha shots in previous posts.
