A really rough animation of some nice activity around AR2665 this morning. This was done using my Port-A-Mount II so was simply using the slo mo controls to keep the disk in the FOV by hand and then allowing the disk to drift through the FOV while capturing the frames. Since I could get 500 frames in a matter of seconds the sun didn't drift a lot during the captures and AS2! was able to align the frames with no problems. Wavelets done in Registax and then all of the frames were aligned and made into a GIF in PS CC.
