Activity on the Limb - 18th April

There was plenty of small scale activity heading towards the suns western limb today, with 2 active regions and a filament.  Taken with the ED60 scope using a Lunt 50 etalon double stacked with a Daystar Quark and FLIR GH3 ICX814 camera showed up these details nicely.  Sadly this activity will be gone again over the next couple of days and with nothing new coming around the opposite limb looks like we could be back to a blank sun again.  Hopefully something that won't last too long!
