Ha Full Disk 13th April

The sun was shining nicely in North Wales this morning, but being in the mountains makes for choppy seeing.  I was trying out the portable rig - my Skywatcher AZ Gti mount, with the ED60 with a pair of double stacked Lunt 50 etalons on.  It was difficult getting focus as i'd forgotten the sun shade for the laptop and the bright spring sunshine was blinding.  However it was nice to be able to image AR12738 as it was squarely geo effective, maybe this will be the last big sunspot of cycle 24?
