Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Lunt 35mm Ha Telescope, Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, 2x barlow and DMK41 mono camera.

Active region full of sunpots and filaments.

Reckon I captured a solar flare on the right side. I could see this sunpot group brighting and quickly captured some data.

Checked the internet and there was a M7 medium class flare at 1307 utc. Exactly the time I was imaging.

Sun dynamic so always something different to image every session.

150 seconds at 1/217 exposure.
