Recent Image of Extreme Solar Activity

On May 12th, 2012 members of our astronomical association gathered to share their experiences about astrophotography topics. Before others arrived, I managed to capture some images using the observatory's 200/2470 D&G refractor and the excellent DMK 41AU02.AS camera, with a Herschel wedge and Baader Continuum filter. The sky was a bit hazy but the image was very steady, I was suprised to see the small details.
