I wanted to capture the sunset on 1st March 2011. Because of high moisture in the air, the sunset was very spectacular. While sun was setting, the spot and active region #1164 came out. I used a Vixen 80L refractor with f= 1200 mm in the Weikersheim observatory, a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV was fixed on it. I also made a short movie clip with 2 minutes length. Better to watch was a time lapse with every tenth frame used: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFdRFp5yetQ
