AR12305 - A Busy Bit of Sun - 24th March

After what seems like quiet times on the suns disk these past couple of weeks I was pleasantly surprised to see the plethora of active regions, plage and filaments that have rounded the solar eastern limb.  There is loads to see!  For once the seeing and also transparency was playing ball in the early evening sunshine allowing me to get a half decent capture.  Hopefully over the coming weeks our star is going to remain like this and i'm going to get some more clear skies to be able to image.  Taken with the Skywatcher ED80, Imaging Source DMK31, 0.5x focal reducer and Daystar Quark.
