AR12321 M1 Flare Animation - 12th April

Conditions were far from good on Sunday morning, with a high and gusty wind buffeting the scope about, but also a layer of fairly persistent high cloud and fast moving thicker clouds scudding by.  I could see that a solar flare was under way so decided to try for a capture anyway; this is about 20 minutes of animation captured with the ED80, Quark and DMK31 camera.  While not perfect it was nice to be able to get some view of the flare from this new set of active regions.
