AR12572 Animation 7th August

Even with a small scope like the 80mm Skywatcher and a Daystar Quark it is very easy to see just how dynamic our star is.  This active region as it approaches the limb is quite lively as can be seen in this 15 frame animation spanning 7 minutes real time.  The jet prominence on the limb is quite static in comparison.  The camera used was a PGR Blackfly GigE IMX249.
