AR12403 in Ha 19th August

This little active region as appeared on the limb has developed very rapidly, and at the time of this post has been crackling away with C-class flares and also a small M class flare.  Certainly one to keep an eye on in the coming days ahead.  This image was taken in poor conditions with variable transparency caused by high clouds, but, given the conditions has come out better than expected.  Taken with the 125mm scope at 3.8m focal length with the Baader Solar Telecompressor and the PGR Blackfly gigE IMX249 camera.
