I'm not really sure this active region has a designation but maybe someone can correct me on that!  I cut down the ROI to 640 X 480 and got 174 fps.  Captured 500 frames every minute for a total of 30 minutes.  Pretty active for approaching Solar Minimum!  This is with the Lunt LS60T SS, Skyris 236M on the iOptron CEM25P.

Really cool! I knew one of these would be sizzling a little today, there was plenty of activity!

 

Very best,

Thanks!

 

Rick, my wife thought it looked like a type of bug!  I haven’t seen one quite as active as this one was, almost like an out gassing on the surface.  Amazing how much movement there was in that short amount of time.

It received designation, it's AR2715. The umbra today is already larger and it's really active. :)

 

Very best,

Very best,

I just saw that, kind of fun to catch it as it was being “born”!

Yea, yesterday it was small, just a dot of an umbra. Today it's large enough to see detail around the umbra which is really great.

 

Very best,
