 Full Disk:

Lets show you the full disk shot today, taken around 9am. Here we used the Lunt 100 as well with a .5x focal reducer installed to fit the entire disk on to the chip. Note the big flaring sunspot pair in the center, and on the right a huge dark filament with a solar flare right under it!

Below, next we zoom in with the 3x Klee Barlow and take a closer look at the flaring regions:

Finally, some proms around the edges of the disk at 3x.

and next some Red Wing of Halpha shots to show the magnificent Ellerman Bombs around the active regions, seen as bright white points like stars around the spots. These are micro flares that last around 10 minutes then fade.
