Lunt 80mm Ha double-stacked Solar Scope and Point Grey Grasshopper 3 camera with a 2.5x Powermate
After yet another X-class flare event, the sun gave up this beautiful looping double-arch flare from Sunspot 12673. It was a very bright flare. I was fortunate to capture it with a Point Grey Grasshopper 3 camera and my Lunt 80mm solar scope before it passed on to the far side.
