Video-Spots on the Sun through my 8" (203mm) telescope

This is a video of spots on the Sun. I focused on the sunspot called 1302, This is how this huge X-class spot looks in my 8" newtonian telescope at 700x .

Sunspot 1302 has already produced two X explosions (X1.4 on 22 September and X1.9 on 24 September). This video is made four days before the eruption, on 18 September 2011.

Each of these black spots are larger than the Earth, and the entire active region covers more than 100,000 km from end to end. Sunspot magnetic field is present in sub X-class, but could grow in larger eruptions, and the danger is high, especially because the sunspots continue to turn to the Earth.

Note: Never watch the Sun with the naked eye, or any other optical aid! This can permanently damage your seeing! Sun should be viewed only using specialized equipment.
