More flares and finally some images

Sunspot 1476 continues to be very active again today, it released a medium sized M class flare which my solar flare monitor picked up (don't forget you can watch these in real time at that link).  It's still facing away from us so CMEs that may come off one of these flares won't be geoeffective. However it is encircled by a retinue of large filaments which can be the ammunition for CMEs.
I've finally got imaging again after many months and my first image of this spot will appear later.
